Krab Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Knitting Granny

This tastes better than any Krab salad from a Deli. You can substitute cooked Krab and shrimp for the 12 oz. cooked Krab. Adjust the amount of mayonnaise to suit your own taste. The two hours cooking time is actually the time in the refrigerator. Have plenty of your favorite crackers on hand!

Top Review by LeeAnn S.

I followed the recipe but added 2 large stalks of celery and 2 green onions and the juice of a very large lemon... the additional crunch and lemon juice really put this over the top and made it super light, crisp, and refreshing for summer. Super simple and quick to put together. Eat as soon as you're done making it or refrigerate for a while to get the flavors to meld together.
