    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Arrange around the rim of a bowl some whole lettuce leaves.
    2. 2
      Place in the center of the bowl about 1/2 cup shredded lettuce leaves.
    3. 3
      Combine ingredients 1-9 in a bowl to make the Crab Louis sauce. Chill it if you have time for a few hours -- It will be better.
    4. 4
      Add enough sauce to crab meat until crab is well coated but not runny and toss thoroughly. (you might not use all of the sauce).
    5. 5
      Assemble into bowls and garnish with chopped eggs.
    6. 6
      best if chilled but sometimes I can't wait.

      Hmmm. Well, I think I sinned...I used pollock...but overall it was fine. Pretty tangy. Not sure it is something I will love. BUT, I thought I would use so much more crab. So, next time, I think I will buy real crab. The sauce was nearly double what I needed. So, I'll buy a smaller amount of crab and make 1/2 the sauce. I want to try it again. For now, i'm going to chop it really fine and eat it on a bagel! thanks for sharing!

      Yummy! I've been waiting for several weeks to make this salad. Earlier this week, I had a bunch of girlfriends over for dinner (king crab legs), and steamed extra crab legs so I could prepare this salad the next day. Made the recipe as directed, and loved it. I might use a tad less chili sauce next time, but that's just my personal taste. I used about half of the sauce and had more than enough to sufficiently coat the crab meat. Thank you Potsie for posting this classic recipe!
