Lighter Crab Dip

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I make a crab dip based on one by Pet-R-Us I took it along to a 'zaar (we were members of Recipezaar when we met many years ago) BBQ yesterday where I was encouraged by the others to post my version. We catch, pick and freeze our own crab meat, so I just grab a packet or two out-I think I usually aim to use around a cup, but it's OK if it's a bit more. I actually squeeze each artichoke as dry as I can, or the liquid spoils the dish. I like to serve this on crusty fresh sour dough baguette slices, but you can use chips, crackers or vegetable crudites if you prefer!

The DH and I were one of the couples at the ZAAR get together BBQ and it was fantastic so creamy and rich tasting that you wouldn't believe that low fat had been used. I would just loved to have been able to sit down with a spoon and eaten as was but on thick slices of fresh white baguette it was a total delight to eat. Thanks Jan for a great day and a greater treat in sharing this wonderful dish.
