This is one of my favorites. I picked up the recipe when I worked at an IGA supermarket where it was the best seller at the salad bar. It's sure to be a favorite with anyone who likes seafood.

The recipe should have been "1 small onion" also using red onion makes for nicer presentation however if you use a red onion they tend to be very large so I would suggest half the onion... Read More

I have mixed feelings about this.... I was expecting more flavor. All I could taste was celery and onion (I omitted the bell pepper called for). Couldn't taste the shrimp, crab, mayo, dill or Old Bay seasoning (I added a dash for flavor). I think something was missing... a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, more dill or sweet imitation crabmeat would have done the trick, I'm sure. Another reason for my low rating was due to texture - mine seemed kinda soupy (not really soupy, but enough to make me not care for this). Served on a croissant with a side of potato chips, this made a quick weeknight meal. I don't think I'll be bringing leftovers with me to work this week though. I should have tried Crab Salad by Christine as it seems to better suit my taste (and seems more like the deli stuff I like at my local grocer). Thanks anyways! Read More

Very yummy! I would suggest cutting back on the onion a little but other than that the salad was wonderful! Read More

This was a great seafood salad. I used tuna instead of crab or the old bay seasoning but it still turned out wonderful and im looking forward to making this again! Using red onion was a good choice with this recipe along with lemon pepper. Read More

This was great. I used 1 small onion, and 1/2 a medium sized green pepper. I also added in 1/4 cup of Old Bay seafood seasoning, along with ground black pepper, parsley, and a pinch of lemon-pepper seasoning. It was great. I served it with butter lettuc. I will most surely frequent allrecipes.com for more tasty recipes such as this one. I think that the key is, if you have been cooking long enough, then you can kinda tweak any recipe to your own liking. The addition of the Old Bay gave it the taste I was going for! Read More

This is so good. The flavors mixed well. I used a whole small onion. I thought it was perfect. We ate it on pita bread and crackers. It would even be great on a tossed salad. I will be taking this to our Easter gathering. Read More

This was good-but not amazing. It does taste very similar to the typical seafood salad you can buy at the meat counter of your local grocery store. If this is what you are looking for then this recipe is for you! Read More
