Crab salad for a crowd

I made this salad for my sister in-law and she loved it. She said it was one of the best she has ever eaten.

Quick crab salad for a crowd

1 pound package of noodles, cooked according to package directions (I like the large shells)
1 pound imitation crab meat broken into small bite size pieces
4 large celery ribs, finely chopped
6 green onions, sliced thin
1/4 of a large red bell pepper, diced small
Optional: 1 package of frozen peas, thawed


1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 good shake of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (sounds crazy in this dish, but it gives it that little something that you can't quite put your finger on)

In a small bowl mix the dressing ingredients together. Toss the dressing with the salad ingredients. Chill well. Stir once again before service as the dressing tends to settle in the bottom of the bowl.
