READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Ambervim

I evolved this over the years based on something a grocery used to make. Feel free to add other crunchy or yummy stuff to your liking. Cucumbers and green peppers come to mind.

Great, easy salad for warm days. It is great on lettuce, with crackers or even in a wrap or sandwich. I loved the addition of the chopped apples. It's a good way to use imitation crab. Thanx!
