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.

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.

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.

Kikuchan's Potato-Crab Salad

A fluffy seafood-potato salad which can be served anytime. This is a fancy version of the salad that's on every respectable plate lunch in Hawaii. Feel free to substitute a can of tuna, a can of baby shrimp, or 1/2 lb. of shredded imitation crabmeat for the real stuff. Note: Most potato salads in Hawaii do not include mustard
