Step 1.  Louis Dressing

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together and keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Step 2. 

Heat the Fustini's Single Varietal olive oil in a sauté pan until hot. Add the scallions, garlic, celery and jalapeno turn the heat to low and sauté until softened, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the ingredients cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, breadcrumbs and Old Bay seasoning in a large bowl.
