"I tried for years to duplicate the crab salad that was made in the seafood market i used to work for, but never could. However, I came up with this one and prefer it a whole lot more. My daughter will hide with the batch I make and eat it all. She doesn't like to share. Serve with club-style crackers."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

This salad is delicious. We made two versions. We tweaked the ‘made recipe as written’ by subbing 1 tbsp Stevia in the Raw for the sugar and used fresh Italian parsley (probably closer to a tabl...

Excellent flavor, consistency and visual appeal. I'm not very keen on the light Ranch but it adds kind of tangy zip to this. I followed the recipe exactly and it does remind me of the Golden C...

My search for the perfect crab salad is over. I've made this several times and the only thing I've changed is cutting back the mayo to 1/4 cup. Definitely a keeper. Filed under my TNT folder.
