I always have krab and cottage cheese in the fridge, so this mayonnaise-free salad is a staple in our house.

Very good and so easy to make. Made with lowfat cottage cheese and fat free sour cream to make it even healthier. Great lunch for a hot summer day!

this is very similar to a salad my grama'nita makes with cream, mayo, krab, celery and olives. i love cottage cheese so this was a nice departure from the heavy cream and mayo combo! i always add shredded carrots to my crab salad, and this was DIVINE!!!!

This was nice and light and refreshing, a good quick hot summer meal. I made it as directed but used low fat cottage cheese and light sour cream. I also was worried about it being bland because of the other review so I added a bit more dijon, garlic powder, peper and also added seasoned salt. The flavor was very nice and not bland. This is not the most delicious thing I have ever had but considering how easy, inexpensive and healthy it is I will likely make it often...and you should too.
