This humble and interesting dish graced every festive family meal, created by my host-mom in Voronezh, Russia. We've shared it back home with friends here in the states, and they get hooked! It seems like the flavors wont mix, but they do perfectly. The dish is so versatile, it can be served cold with crackers or baguette slices, between slices of bread for a sandwich, or pop it in the oven for a gooey cheesy dip. If you can afford it, try fresh crab. But honestly, the imitation crab does just fine. Try it, you'll like it! :)
- 16 ounces imitation crabmeat (small packages, or if you can afford it, substitute fresh crab)
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
- 1 cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded (extra sharp is best, but can substitute yellow cheddar)
- 1 cup mayonnaise (if you can find it, use Russian mayo- it's the best!)
- 2 -3 teaspoons fresh cracked pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- baguette (Sliced and toasted, or buttery crackers are good)
- Dice crab meat into small cubes, making them same approximate size as pineapple tidbits, combine together.
- In bowl combine mayo, shredded cheese, salt and pepper, add to crab mixture.
- Chill (or serve warm) with crackers or toasted baguette slices.
