Crab Salad Tortilla Wraps * Subway Copycat

The kids told me this was definitely a "keeper" of a recipe. The hard-boiled egg really adds some depth to the flavor. Add your own flavorites to accommodate your family's tastebuds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, snip crab meat into fine pieces. Dice celery, mince onion, and add to crab. Stir and set aside.
  2. Mash cream cheese, then add sour cream, mayo, lemon juice and sugar, mixing until creamy.
  3. Pour cream cheese mixture to crab & veggies, mixing well. Set aside.
  4. Using a pastry blender (or a fork), chop the eggs until crumbly-looking; set aside.
  5. Shred the lettuce and set aside.
  6. PUT IT TOGETHER: Spread about a 1/4-cup of crab mixture in a thin layer over a tortilla. Sprinkle with eggs and lettuce. Roll tortilla up very tightly.
  7. LUNCH or PICNIC: Wrap each tortilla tightly in a slice of waxed-paper. Unwrap or cut in half and keep it neat!
  8. PLANNED OVERS: Mix remaining crab, lettuce and egg, and have it for lunch the next day!
  9. CHANGE OVERS: Add some French or Western dressing and a dab of horseradish with the mayonnaise to create more of a seafood saucey flavor. Yummmy! OR dip wrap in this! Even better!
  10. Plan for two wraps per person, with "leftovers" being chilled and served for lunch the next day (or a late night snack?).

I made up my own recipe a few years ago which was the same except for the cream cheese. This makes a huge difference. I also use Miracle Whip. I only use it for when I make crab salad. (I do not like it in anything else) It's sweet, less calories, and I don't need to add the sugar. This is now my new recipe. Thanks

I also did not add the sugar and it tastes wonderful!!! i havent chopped up the eggs yet and dont think i would use them in the future but i will use them now, im sure they would taste wonderful with or without:) i would probly even serve the mixture as a dip for veggies or crackers because there is soooo much. Thanks for a great mouth watering recipe..a zillion stars

I don't think this tasted at all like Subway's seafood salad but it was very good nonetheless. I mixed everything together to take to a potluck lunch and the 'sauce' part of it was overpowering; there was just too much of it for my taste. Next time I make this, I think I'll cut the sour cream/cream cheese/mayo mixture in half and see what happens. I also didn't really look at my package of seafood so it could have been a smaller package than what was called for. Thanks for a great recipe!
