READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Donna Matthews

This is another of our favorite recipes from Colonial Williamsburg. Although we always include it in our Thanksgiving menu, we also eat this one for dinner at many other times of year.

This was fantastic. I substituted fat free mayonnaise for regular to bring the calories down more. I also wrapped the salad in Iceberg lettuce for presentation.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pick over the crabmeat and discard any bits of shell or cartilage if using real crabmeat.
  2. Alternately, if using artificial crabmeat, break into smaller pieces to resemble real crabmeat.
  3. Combine the crabmeat and celery.
  4. Mix remaining ingredients together (except lettuce) and pour over the crabmeat.
  5. Mix gently to avoid breaking the lumps of crabmeat.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve on lettuce.
