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!

Really enjoyed this. Marinating the crab for the full hour really makes a difference. The only change I made was to add a bit of lemon juice to give it an acid edge. Served with baked tortilla wedges for lunch. Thanks for a great recipe that we'll make frequently!

Made this a couple of weeks ago and was really impressed. I grew up in Maryland so if a crab recipe doesn't include Old Bay, I'm not interested! I was so pleased that I'm making it again tomorrow for a company potluck. Used real crab meat. If you live near a Trader Joe's, you can get a 1 lb. can for $9.

My hubby and I absolutely love this recipe. I've been craving Crab Salad a lot with it becoming summer and this is one of the best I've tried. I haven't used the real blue crab with it yet, but the imitation crab meat goes very well with this so I can't wait to try it with the real thing. Definitely a keeper in our house. Thanks Andi for the great recipe!

I chose to make this recipe especially for DH, as he likes him some crab LOL. Made exactly as written, except I did not include the celery seed as I could not find it in the spice cabinet. Light and tasty, DH loved it atop gluten-free crackers. Thanks for posting, I will make this again during the summer months - made for Spring PAC 2012.

Terrific! I made this exactly as written and had all of the ingredients on hand - even the crab meat thanks to a sale at the market! Living in Maryland, I know there are high expectations when it comes to crab anything. This did not disappoint. I used 1 lb of Special meat and served it on lettuce with crackers. It tasted like a crabcake without having to fry and heat the whole kitchen. Thanks for an awesome, authentic Maryland crab recipe!
