    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    This is a personal recipe -- tried and true -- made time and time again. I use this in the good ol summa' time, but can be used during the rest of the year as well. Normally, I buy "cold steamed blue crabs" from our local fish market, that are bursting with flavor after resting in the unique Maryland seasoning. I pick the meat, and make this cooling, refreshing salad. It is also great served on a saltine or toast points. Usually though, I just place atop a garden fresh lettuce leaf, and grab a cracker or two with it. If you get the time, marinate the crab meat in 1 tablespoon of Italian dressing for about 1 hour prior to gently folding together. If you don't get the time, that's okay too! Just *enjoy* You can substitute lobster, shrimp, or even conch meat.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb crabmeat, fresh (can use other suggested seafood)
    • 1 tablespoon Italian dressing (to marinate the crab)
    • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (to taste, if prefer spicy go up to 1 tablespoon)
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (important to use Dukes or Hellman's)
    • 1/4 cup red pepper, diced
    • 1/4 cup celery, diced
    • 1 small spring onion, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
    • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (Dijon can be subbed)
    • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 dash Tabasco sauce (add more for additional spicy taste)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Carefully comb through crab meat for any extra shells.
    2. 2
      Making sure not to break up crab, marinate crab pieces with Italian dressing for about 1 hour. But if you don't get a chance, ten minutes works well too.
    3. 3
      Mix all other ingredients in a medium bowl thoroughly.
    4. 4
      Add crab meat mixture to mayonnaise mixture and mix with spatula, again not to break up pieces.
    5. 5
      You can either cool in fridge for an hour or two, or you can eat directly.

      This is an AWESOME recipe. Made for a big Birthday gathering and had to stop in the middle of the party and print off copies of the recipe. I made it with imitation crabmeat and salad shrimp. Added a little extra Italian dressing because the imitation crabmeat soaked it up. BOY.........the Itailian Dressing makes such a big difference. My oldest GS wants to make sub sandwiches with this recipes. THIS IS A KEEPER. Thanks for the GREAT recipe.

      Wonderful! I used imitaion crab meat and I added 1 can of quality crab meat. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I served on a bed of lettuce and with cottage cheese. This is a great salad for the hazy, hot and humid days of summer! Thanks Andi.

      This is an excellent recipe! We made it to eat on hoagie rolls like a lobster roll. Substituted shrimp and just diced them up coarsely. I've been looking for "salad" recipe that he would actually eat, i.e. tuna, chicken, to no avail. I talked him into trying this one and he LOVED it! Kudos and thanks!
