Crab salad

13 posts in this topic

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.

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!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
