Low fat and filling. I use imitation crab in this, but it also works well with lobster, real crab and shrimp. For a tangy flavor, add 1 teaspoon mustard.

This is a very good recipie. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was b/c the mayo recommended was way too much even if you cut it in half. Next time I will put in 1/4 the recommended amount. Read More

Only change I made was that I added a full pound of imitation crab since there was sooo much of the dressing. Excellent recipe and tastes great! The whole family is impressed! Read More

First of all: not enough mayonnaise. Not even close. Seafood salad, like all food, can only be improved upon by adding more mayonnaise. I recommend this recipe with an additional 6 cups of light mayonnaise. For mayonnaise enthusiasts like me, I recommend 12 cups of full strength Hellman's. Also, remove the salt, vinegar, milk, crabmeat, celery, and bell pepper. It's not really necessary, and only hinders the flavor of the mayonnaise. Read More

This was great. I did double the crab meat and cut the dressing in half and it was just as we like it. I also added some finely chopped onion. I liked it better than what we get in the deli at the store. Read More

I love this recipe! I did use about 1/3 less dressing along with a little more crab meat but kept everything else the same. I serve it in a pita pocket with shredded lettuce and my husband and I devour it! Read More

It's a really good recipe but it needs some tweaking. I think whoever entered it may have made a mistake. 1 cup of mayo to 1 cup of crabmeat is insane. It ends up all mayo. I made it 16 oz of crab and 16 oz of salad shrimp and it tastes great! I love it on buttercrisp crackers! Read More
