Cooking Direction:

1. Dice pepper and celery  (in my opinion, a good size for dices is the diameter of macaroni).

2. Chopped green onion, add salt, and smash just gently to release more flavor.

  1. My suggestion if we serve a large party appetizer with crab meat, garnish the top of the dish with crab meat. This way people can see crab meat includes in this dish. It is important because some people don’t like exotic seafood, others have allergies. It a good rule to follow for every exotic seafood dish.

      2. If you are going to make the recipe only for pasta salad, eggs better to dice.
