Very good, but a bit dry and crumbly for my taste.We have lactose intolerant individuals and I added mayo to my preferred texture. It worked wonderfully.

So quick to make and really low-fat which is such a major plus; and a recipe which allows the crabmeat to be the star of the show. This is a recipe which I know I’ll be coming back to again and again and making for easy take-to-work lunches during the summer months. I grated the onion and the garlic (I used 2 cloves) and I served this for lunch over slices of fresh brown rye bread with baby lettuce leaves. It looked and tasted sensational. Everyone loved it. It would also make an excellent appetizer. Thanks Oolala!
