Another recipe from real cajun recipes. Submitted by Dakota Delcambre...she writes the following;Most Cajuns follow the tradition of not eating meat on Friday during the Lenton season. This recipe would be great for Lent. Donald writes - Dakato is the great grandson of Isadore Delcambre, This is my son, 8 yr-old Dakota's 1st easy to make lunch recipe. This salad should be served on your favorite sandwich bread along with your favorite extras: lettuce, cheese, etc... Dakota experienced his first crawfish-boil in Washington! (You should have seen him and his siblings). Master Dakota - you make us Cajuns proud.

I used fresh 1 albacore, 2 chicken of the sea, 2 lump crap meat, chopped kosher pickles, yellow onion, garlic, Old Bay and chopped up 4 celery stalks very fine. Everything else I used in your recipe. Then I let it marinate overnight in the fridge. The next day for lunch, I put it on warm buttered sourdough toast with melted swiss cheese, spinach leaves and a beefsteak tomato slice. Then I made hyroponic butter-lettuce wraps with fresh chopped grape tomatoes and brown spicy mustard. Let's just say it's all gone. Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely wonderful! I added chopped onion and garlic and seasoned with Old Bay. I can't wait to see how it tastes tomorrow after it sits overnight!

Wonderful! I used lump crabmeat and fresh chopped onions instead of onion powder. It's a cool, creamy salad. Great on rolls or on a bed of lettuce. Thanx for posting!
