It's getting warm here in Minnesota. Pasta salad season is finally upon us. Here's a simple recipe that goes together quickly.
2 cups dry elbow macaroni or pasta of choice
3 small celery stalks, finely chopped
2 green onions, green parts only
8 oz Imitation crab meat broken into bite sized pieces
1 cup frozen peas
1/2-1 cup mayo
1/2-1 tbsp sugar
1-2 tbsp white vinegar
1-2 tbsp milk
Salt to taste, I used sea salt & seasoning salt
Pepper to taste
A sprinkle of garlic salt
A squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, or more to taste
Cook pasta al dente per directions.
While pasta is cooking chop your celery and green onion.
When pasta is done, drain and transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add all of the ingredients to your bowl and mix thoroughly.
Now taste it and adjust it accordingly. If you like a sweeter salad add sugar. Savory, add salt. Saucy, add mayo and milk. Etc.
You could add regular onion.
Make it a dish you love.
This is so simple and delicious. Very refreshing on a hot day!
