Once upon a time my husband was on a soccer team (isn't that a great beginning to a story?) Our friends had decided to bring a picnic for their kids to eat during the game. They had this salad, shared some with me and I fell in love with it, got the recipe, and now I am giving it to you. The end. Okay not really because I still have to give you the recipe! It isn't like most of the pasta salads you have had before, it is much much better (as long as you like crab, which I do).
12 oz large shell cooked macaroni
2 cut up carrots (not baby carrot size, big size)
1 bag frozen peas
1 can cut up olives
1 small sliced purple onion (I dice mine)
3/4 lb crab meat (I prefer imitation crab)
celery (to taste, and it is optional)
1-2 tomatoes, cut up
Mix it all together
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. salad dressing
1/8 c. pickle juice
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp celery seed
2 tsp seasoned salt.
mix all dressing ingredients together and then mix into salad above.
