I am continually frustrated by people who provide a rating for a recipe but yet state that they "changed some of the ingredients". They are not providing a review for the listed recipe, but instead one of their own. I did try the Mediterranean Seafood Salad and prepared it exactly as specified. It is excellent and doesn't need to be changed in any way. It is very tasty and I'll be using this recipe again.


I would actually give this one about 3.5 stars but am rounding up due to the rating scale. The recipe was better than store bought salads and was on par with decent restaurant food. There was WAAAAYYYY too much mayo used in the recipe. Next time I would cut the mayo down to about 1 cup, maybe even 3/4 of a cup. There also wasn't enough pasta to balance out the abundant amount of mayo. If you are going to keep the mayonaisse the same I would add another 1/2 to 3/4 cup of dried pasta. If you bring the mayo down I would still add about another 1/4 cup of pasta. The taste was good for an imitation crab salad. The Worcestershire and hot sauce give it a nice tang. If you want more spice I would hold up on the hot sauce and add more dijon or Worcestershire instead, they will give it a kick with a stronger flavor. If you just want that burning on your tounge sensation go with the hot sauce or add a couple teaspoons of minced raw onion. With a few changes I believe this recipe could be a solid 4 (perhaps higher).


This was pretty good. I did make some adjustments for my family. Instead of Catelina dressing I used Ranch. I also added 1/2 cup sour cream.
