Jo's Crab Pasta Salad

Once in a while I will taste a dish that I will immediately say, "I have to have this recipe!"  Well, this is one of those dishes.  I first had this several years ago when my sister in law made it for a family party.  I made sure I got the recipe from her and it has since become one of my favorite salads to serve at our barbecues.  I LOVE this salad, and so does the family!  Thanks Jo!


1 12 oz. package medium shell pasta
1 lb. imitation flaked crab
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 onion finely chopped
8 hard boiled eggs, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp. sweet relish
2 tsp. sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according package directions.  Rinse and cool.
Boil the eggs and peel.
Chop the crab into small pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the pasta, crab, celery, onions and eggs.
In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, relish and sugar.
Pour over the pasta and mix well.
Salt and pepper to taste. 
So delicious!!!!

  2. Hi

    Can you use fresh crabmeat in this recipe.

    1. I don't see why not! The imitation crab is just less expensive. Hope you enjoy it!
