Two changes. But an excellent recipe. I agree with the one poster who said the 2 tablespoons should of been dijon, which is what I used and it was excellent. Also, I added just a bit of spinach to mine crab balls and it was excellent. I used frozen chopped spinach, drained very well. We loved the recipe.

one change: I think the 2 tbsp mayo in the sauce is supposed to be dijon mustard. This is what I did. Great recipes, a big hit at the staff Christmas party, had to give out the recipe to a lot of people. It's a nice change from having fried appetizers.
