    Used different ingredients. This was really good. I don't like capsicums so I ommited them. I added hard boiled eggs, can't have a pasta salad without eggs. I did'nt have honey mustard so I added 1T honey and 1 T yellow mustard. The crab went really well with the dressing mixture. I will make this one again. Thanks for sharing with us.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I read some of the previous reviews, so I doubled the sauce, added garlic, celery & hard boilded eggs. It was great!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Excellent recipe. I added some cucumber to the mix. Next time I would reduce the amount of noodles used to make it creamier. After sitting overnight, the noodles were a bit dry. Rave reviews from friends. Definitely a keeper!  -  29 Sep 2008
