Brought this dish to a church pot luck last night and everyone loved it. I made a few changes. I used one pound of low sodium bacon about a 1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion instead of the onion powder and 1/2 cup mayo. and 1/3 cup ranch dressing grated black pepper. Topped the dish with grape tomatoes. Yummmmy! Read More

I made this last night and followed the recipe exactly. Let it mellow in the fridge til today so the flavors could blend. I thought it just so-so. After reading all the reviews, I added more onion salt, some chopped garlic, a couple of pinches of sugar, a little vinegar to thin out the mayo, and some shredded Colby/jack cheese. I was much happier with the taste, but I think there are way too many peas. I will make it again with my changes, and next time increase the crabmeat and decrease the peas. Read More

I have made this without the tomatoes and it is great especially for lunch in the summer. Serve on Hawaiian bread. Read More

This is good although I changed some things. Only added 5 slices of bacon b/c I thought the bacon flavor would be too overwhelming and I'm glad I did I think I will leave it out all together next time. All it does it take away from the crab. I also added a few squirts of ranch dressing and a sprinkling of garlic salt and a little bit of fresh ground pepper. It's better to make this ahead of time and let it sit for a few hours to a day in order to let the flavors meld together. Read More
