Not Your Usual Pasta Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Thanks for this kicked up pasta salad! I created the dressing as you suggested but changed the other ingredients to my taste. I used onion, cucumber, egg, medium cheddar, and imitation crab. I also added a little bit of old bay and cracked pepper. I think this would taste great with shrimp too!

I have to admit, this recipe's title is what initially stirred my interest. Then, I continued to be intriguing when I discovered it indeed WASN'T some variation of an italian dressing pasta salad. I realized I had a little less than a cup of light mayo left, so mine wasn't as dressed as it should be. Per personal taste, I subbed yellow mustard for Dijon and left out the celery and black olives, while I added some carrot. I belatedly realized I'd left out the eggs, but next time (and yes, there WILL be a next time) I'll use pickled eggs! Oh yeah, I'm also lazy, so I subbed "real bacon bits" for bacon. THANK YOU for a great *different* pasta salad, KB COUNTRYGIRL! EDIT: I made this again and added chopped pickled eggs and that was a nice *pop*, both in flavor and color. I also made using green onions, as opposed to red, since I was making it for a crowd ad green tend to be a bit milder and I really missed the crunch, and bite, of the red onion.

Pretty tasty! The add-in's are great. I'd 1/2-2/3 the red onion. Do not use mayonnaise - use Miracle Whip!! It's sweetness counters the vinegar. It's needed.

I just made this tonight. It's a great change. I made it just as recipe stated but since daughter is a vegetarian left out bacon and topped with some tuna. I will keep this recipe! Bacon would be delicious though!
