Crab Salad in Endive Leaves

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

I saw the lovely Giada de La make this on The Food Network last week, and HAD to do this for guests for lunch. Followed the recipe as written, except - as a Chesapeake Bay seafood lover, HAD to add a sprinkle of Phillips Seafood Seasoning. (NOT Old Bay --too salty!) Served with Greek-Style Oven-Roasted Lemon-Butter Parmesan Potatoes - Greek-Style Oven-Baked Lemon Parmesan Potatoes, by Kittencal. All were suitably impressed! Super simple, too !

This made a nice salad, we served it with a variety of salads at our BBQ. I kept to the recipe except I used baby endive leaves. The recipe was easy to put together and directions were really easy to follow. Thank you NurseJane for posting your recipe.
