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 this crab pasta salad 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!
