    I thought this was a wonderful pasta salad and it's my new favorite. This was the 1st time I've paired crab, pasta, and fruit... what a combination! This will be a great addition to my recipe collection.

    Both my husband/I love crab salad. Had never thought about adding fruit before; very clever idea. Grapes are one of our favorite summer treats, so we will definitely be enjoying this all summer long. Thank you for sharing recipe, Darlene. KathyJ.

    Very tasty. The ginger was a little too strong for my husband. Will adjust next time. Had it for dinner with a small bowl of Navy Bean Soup.
