I love this for a summer party. My daughter will eat it for dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition

  1. In a large bowl blend crab meat without breaking it up too much.

One of our holiday appetizers back in December. A nice and easy recipe to serve with crackers. Likely only juice one lime next time around. We liked the addition of the Clamato juice. Thank you for sharing.
