WOW! This was so easy and so good! I added some fresh snipped chives for color but otherwise did not change the recipe. I was a little worried that the addition of butter would make it "greasy" but this was not the case. I had a small dinner party for family members that I have just recently met and made this as an appetizer. I garnished it with fresh parsley sprigs and lemon twists. It was a hit. It also seems to lend itself easily to additions of your choice. I think I will add a little shredded fresh horseradish and first try that version out on my husband. I highly recommend this recipe for the upcoming Holidays, when things get hectic with family and parties.

This recipe was a super hit at our wedding reception! Many people wanted the recipe. I made the recipe exactly as the recipe called for except I was able to use fresh dungeness crab. I am certain that canned crab would be fine. It tasted great with both crackers and french bread baguettes. Be careful if you make it, it's addictive!

I printed this recipe in 2003 and finally made it in 2007. I can't believe I waited so long..........it's great! The only change I made was to use green onions (and tops) instead of minced onion. Good, quick, and easy appetizer that everyone liked! Thank you, Colleen

This was good but was definitely better on the second day, so make a day ahead! EDITED: Had a small amount leftover on the 3rd day--tossed with hot pasta YUMMY! Would be divine with some extra fresh lump crab. Thanks again.

Outstanding! I followed the recipe exactly and honestly was a little afraid of what I might serve the next day! Boy, was it wonderful! I would make this again anytime. It's quick and easy and, even better, you can make it the night before!

Just mixed this up for tomorrow, tasted it, and I can tell this is going to be the hit of the hors d'oeuvres table. So simple, so good! I'm off to send the recipe to a bunch of relatives, everyone should try this easy one!!

Awesome spread! Make in advance, the flavor is better on the second day! Served with garlic melba toasts and ritz crackers. I will be making this one again soon!
