This spicy crab salad is a great stuffing for tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers or even a lettuce wrap. You could even stuff it in your favorite fish.

Many years ago, when I was expecting a child, I craved a seafood salad served at a restaurant named Cookers in Columbus, OH. They've since closed and I had not found anything like it since. Danny Z's recipe caught my eye as it sounded similar. It is! I doubled the sauce recipe to have extra "dressing" and served it over a tossed salad like they did at the restaurant. It is addicting! YUM! I do like extra kick, so I added some red pepper flakes too.
