Recipe: Shell Pasta Salad

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. It was so nice out that we were even able to sit outside for dinner (love days like that). Too bad that was just a teaser, it's supposed to rain most of this week. Anyhow, that sunny day got me thinking of picnic food. And, one of my favorite picnic recipes is this Shell Pasta salad from my Mother in Law. It's a dish that can be made overnight and can feed a crowd. It's perfect to bring to a potluck. Enjoy.

Shell Pasta Salad Recipe

1lb elbow or shell macaroni
3/4 cup Bernstein's Italian dressing
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup sweet pickled relish
1/4 cup chopped green onions - white part only
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup imitation crab
salt & pepper
1 cup mayonnaise

Make overnight, mix everything except mayonnaise to marinate. Add mayonnaise before serving.

Mayonise is commonly used by Asians for salad making. I confess: I do not how to use heavy cream, double cream, sour cream, whipped cream, half and half, etc.
