    For me, this was just okay. I didn't really care for the taste. May or may not make again.

    When I make this recipe I've learned to cut the seasoned salt in half, cover the salad and let it sit in the fridge for a day --if I can keep my family out of it for that long. We all love it.

    I've made several seafood salads over the years, but this one is by far the best I've come across!! Will definitely be making this one again!!
