Hoppin' John in the Summertime
A hearty Low Country stew adapts itself to a southern summer salad. I got this from my Low Country mother-in-law, who tweaked an idea from her mother's hoppin' john soup one year when it was just too hot.
Summertime Crab Slaw with Napa Cabbage
This cool and refreshing salad is a treat for the hot days of summer. Serve with red wine vinaigrette or dressing of choice.

Crabmeat and pasta are tossed with a creamy seasoned sauce in this great chilled salad.
Crab Macaroni Salad
Flaked, canned crab meat stars in this macaroni salad for a refreshing summertime side dish.
Mel's Crab Salad
I tried for years to duplicate the crab salad that was made in the seafood market i used to work for, but never could. However, I came up with this one and prefer it a whole lot more. My daughter will hide with the batch I make and eat it all. She doesn't like to share. Serve with club-style crackers.
This has always been a crowd pleaser in my home. This is wonderful as an appetizer served on tostadas or even with tortilla chips. Make sure to refrigerate before you serve, it tastes best when very cold. I like to serve on tostadas with a thin layer of mayonnaise for a nice refreshing lunch.
Crab Louie Salad
This is a variation of the classic salad. Get your hands on the freshest Dungeness crab possible. It takes a little time to put this salad together, but for an elegant lunch it really pays off!
Imitation Crabmeat Salad
Great deli-like salad. Our family never seems to get tired of it! You may use low-fat sour cream and mayonnaise if you wish. Serve on lettuce leaves with tomato wedges for a garnish.
