Crab Salad

This is a recipe from Brian's side of the family. He remembers his Aunt Sandy (Denise's younger sister) bringing it to parties, but Denise says she's the one who brought it. It's got all the things kids love; fish, olives, celery. :) Ha! It's for the grown-ups. And Nate.


3 c. macaroni (before it's cooked)

1 lb. imitation crab meat

3 c. celery, chopped

1 medium sized can black olives, sliced (the one in between 4 oz and 15 oz)


1 c. mayonnaise

1 c. sour cream

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. onion powder

2 tsp. season salt

1/2 to 3/4 of a Ranch dressing powder envelope

1/4 to 1/2 c. milk (whisk the first six ingredients, then add milk slowly until you have the consistency you want)

Cook the macaroni to the al dente directions, drain and rinse with cold water. Put macaroni in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients on top. Pour half of dressing over the whole mixture and stir. Pour the remaining half of dressing over the salad and stir again. Chill and serve.
