I came up with this on a whim for either a family get together or a potluck for one of the volunteer organizations I am with. Since then I've been asked to make it often.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine green onions, celery, tomatoes, and crab meat. Stir pasta and vegetables into the crab meat mixture.
  3. Add the seasonings and drizzle in the dressing and toss to coat. Add more dressing, if needed. Refrigerate 4 hours to chill. Even better the next day.
