This can also be made with shrimp or lobster. Serve on a bed of lettuce, it's perfect for an afternoon outdoor (or indoor) summer luncheon. Double the recipe if serving more 4 people. Delicious!

We enjoyed this salad so much! I made as directed, however I used only a very small portion of the dressing over the crab. This recipe makes quite a lot of dressing and I wanted the flavor of the crab to shine through. I served this as our main dish tonight for supper for the two of us. Thanks again, Kittencal!

This was very quick and easy to make. A nice subtle blending of flavours. The dressing is excellent. I used chunks of crab meat and because I didn't have any green peppers I subed with a finely chopped jalapeno pepper. It worked really well with the other flavours. What a lovely salad Kitten, thanks so much for sharing
