This is WONDEFUL!!!! I love it! I am normally not one to mess with the recipe but the first time I made this I did not have any bread - so I just made it without it! It is great with or without the bread! Fabulous lite lunch or dinner and it is great by itself on a bed of lettuce in a tortilla as a wrap or on bread as a sandwich! Read More

Not bad at all although it reminded me more of a macaroni salad than a crab salad Read More

Awesome best crab salad. I used 1 hard boiled egg no bread and green onion instead of yellow. Also substituted Vegenaise for mayo. This is going in the family cookbook! Thanks!! Read More

If the cost of seafood salad keeps you from serving it to large groups try this recipe. This is outstanding. It stretches the seafood without compromising the flavor. I used canned crab and canned shrimp and used some of the liquid from each can together with the mayo and slightly more sour cream. The bread breaks down to a texture that seems like flaked crab (almost like a moist stuffing texture) The onions egg and celery complete the flavors. This was great to make for my ladies luncheon. I had 20 ladies but didn't want to spend that much money on seafood. This was the perfect solution. Thanks Audrie! Read More

This salad received rave reviews from some of the best cooks I know! I used 8 oz. imitation crab and 8 oz. crab claw meat and no one believed it wasn't all real crab! I added some Old Bay and it was wonderful! Read More
