We thought these flavors mixed very well. This made a very tasty light Lenten lunch. Thanks for posting!

The combination of the flavors with crabmeat is very unusual. I do prefer a sweeter crab salad, but this was nice for a change. Thanks, ClareVH!

This was a really easy to make tasty lunch for me. In all honesty I forgot to put the olives in, they would ahve only made this better. The capers and lemon juice help to cut through the sweetness of the Krab. All in all, I would make it again.
