I rated this the way I made it not by the original recipe. Instead of the cream cheese just mix the crabmeat with the cocktail sauce and slice the cuke on the diagonal. I also used the canned shrimp and everybaody liked that just as much. It's easier and lower in calories that the original. Read More

These ended up looking runny and unappetizing. They tasted pretty bland too. Read More

This is very refreshing during the hot summer evenings. I have found blending the ingredients and leaving sit to meld flavors for a while before spreading on cucumber slices is much better and still pretty also. Read More

Well...I did not add crab. I did add chopped chives and garlic powder with a pinch of sea salt then finished with a small bit of roated red pepper. Read More

This is really pretty if you beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and soft and then pipe it into swirls onto the cucumber slices. I used "Krab" (the formed chunks of crab substitute called surimi) which is nice because it is in bigger solid pieces instead of little shreds. Read More

I made this for a party and it didn't receive any praises from guests. I made one first to sample and thought the cocktail sauce overpowered the crabmeat (and I think cocktail sauce is better suited to shrimp anyway) so I sprinkled with Old Bay seafood seasoning instead of using the cocktail sauce. You could substitute baby/cocktail shrimp for the crab and use the cocktail sauce. Read More
