dian s cajun pasta salad


this is my go-to salad for caters and potlucks. in the time is takes to cook the pasta, you can have the rest of the ingredients assembled. the peas go in frozen to help cool the salad immediatly. you can use real crab meat or surimi imitation crab found in the freezer section or seafood section (costco) of a well stocked market. it's great with fresh cooked salad shrimp also. i use lighthouse brand garden ranch because it has bits of carrot and green onion & looks and tastes great. cajun seasoning can be an aquired taste so feel fee to adjust the seasoning or leave it out for a more kid friendly salad. this is one of my most requested recipes. enjoy!
