This was mentioned on the Good Morning thread by our good friend Rebs and got me interested.  Anyone have a good imitation crab salad recipe?  Have never made it before but sounds good.

I mean a salad to eat alone not to put on a bun...

I like using either bowtie pasta or orzo (really like orzo more and more)

  • Pasta; cooked, cooled
  • Half pound of diced, cooked bacon
  • Imitation crab
  • Sliced, blanched carrots
  • Diced celery
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced fine
  • Mayo until desired consistency
  • Season w/ S&P, garlic powder, cayenne pepper

Amounts are to taste/preference. I don't really follow a recipe. Can't go wrong if you taste as you go along ;)

Well, I made a batch of the above recipe, using large shells. Don't. Use the medium ones, the large break apart too easy. I made changes to the recipe, too, as I went along...here's the entire thing the way I made it. Chilling in 'fridge now; we'll taste in a couple hours.

 

1 lb crab, chunk style. (Louis Kemp)

1 cup macaroni shells or a tad more, cooked, drained and cooled under cold water

1/4 chopped medium green pepper

2  thin celery stalks, chopped

1/4 chopped small onion

1 tsp dill weed

Dash seasoned salt

dash garlic powder

1/3 cup miracle whip

1/3 cup sour cream

1/4 cup creamy italian dressing

 

Mix miracle whip, sour cream, and italian together. Combine all other ingredients in large bowl and mix well. Fold in dressing mix. Chill.  Eat. :)

My favorite is Italian pasta salad.

Rotini pasta

Broccoli florettes

Cherry tomatoes sliced in half

Sliced black olives

Italian dressing to taste

Grated Parmesan cheese

Then you can add chopped imitation crab meat, and diced salami.

chill in the frig, add more Italian dressing if needed.

That is a good looking salad there coop. Well everything but the olives!:D:grin:

Well Smurf, that's the beauty if this salad, you can't screw it up. You can substitute the pasta, the vegetables, the meat and cheese and it still turns out great. Some people put in diced cheese instead of Parm, some use pepperoni instead of salami. Remove the olives and use red onions, or green peppers? If you don't like imatation crab meat, you can use chicken, it's still goin to be great!

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
