Top Review by Caryn Dalton

I used a food processor and it was very fast.This was easy to long as you have cold ingredients, I see no reason to refridgerate for at least 2 hours...the mix didn't taste any different the next day. I didn't use as much mayo( about 3/4 cup)..and used low fat turned out great! I toasted some white bread, then topped the bread with a large piece of lettuce, then some sliced tomato..then a big scoop of crabmeat salad. It was a delicious side to our meal...but filling enough to be eaten alone. My husband wants to use the rest in a hoagie. The recipe is very zesty...use less Italian dressing if you don't like that sort of taste. This recipe makes about 6 servings.
