This creamy crab and cream cheese filling is nestled in miniature pita pockets. The filling can be made a day in advance so that you can simply stuff the pita pockets just before serving. Possible garnishes include thin slices of cucumber, carrot curls, or Italian parsley.

This recipe is good and basic, but like others, I dolled it up a bit. I added a lot of Old Bay seasoning, fresh lemon juice, cilantro, jalepeno pepper, and I used real crab. I also used fat free cream cheese and added a bit of lite Mayo. It was very fresh and tasty.

This recipe is so quick and so easy! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I thought the green onion overpowered the crabmeat a little bit. Next time I will use a little less green onion. But overall, a very tasty recipe!

This is real quick, simple, and good. I give 3 stars cos i found the recipe to be a bit bland, so i added jalapeno pepper to the mix and a dash of old bay.
