      I wasn't a big fan of this. It was okay, but I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe a spice or something. I didn't use the miracle whip, because I hate the way it tastes. Maybe I needed the sweetness of that. Anyway, I took it to a family dinner and everyone else seemed to really enjoy it. I will make it again, but I will be doing some tweaking! Thanks for the recipe idea.

      WOW--this was delicious! I made it exactly as written, no substitutes, as an appetitizer for four couples last night and they raved about it. Bagel chips and crackers were served with it. The recipe didn't say, but I drained the cans of shrimp and crab. I made it the day before and glad I did, because as I tasted it periodically for more of this or that I found it got better with time. Thank you Irish Gourmet--a superb and impressive dip/spread!!
