Nice salad, but we found it to be very bland. Another time I would add more seasoning may be some dill and a little dash of seafood sauce to liven it up. Perhaps it would be better if I had used fresh crab, I used canned crab left from the holidays. Thanks for posting I will try it again cus it is low fat and low sugar/carb.

Paula this salad is wonderful, I doubled the complete recipe and used Greek yogurt added in just a teaspoon of sugar, a few hours minumum chilling time only improves the flavor, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
