"This was excellent! I added some diced red, yellow and orange pepper and some diced water chestnuts. YUMMY! This will definitely be a regular at my house."
"This salad was absolutely delicious! My husband and I had it sat. Nite, sun. Nite, and my husband woke up mon. Morning wanting to take some for his lunch, but there was none left! Thanks for the recipe, picholine!"
"Impressed! I really enjoyed this crab salad. I am not a big dill fan so I was nervous. I would defineately make this again. I bet garlic would be great in here also. Thanks!"
"Yummy! VERY VERY GOOD!! omitted black ollves and avocado."
"very good but the kids turned their noses up at it but I thought it had a good flavor"
"This is absolutely delicious! When I read this recipe, I knew it was for me because I love imitation crab, black olives, and avocados. I followed the recipe exactly. I only had one problem, I couldn't stop eating it!!!! :-)"
"I didn't make this recipe. However, I did buy pre-made crab salad which had no taste. So, I took your suggestions and added the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, dill weed, worcestershire sauce and some freshly ground sea salt and pepper. WOW!!!! I've got a great crab salad now! It's delicious and full of flavor. Thanks for listing this recipe and making it easy for me to convert a bland salad into something amazing!!!! Blessings"
"Unbelievable! I used king crab legs and omitted the olives (personal choice) - served it as a wrap for my husband's lunch. He said we should have it for dinner next time with a nice Sauvignon Blanc! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!"
"I LOVE this salad! I keep coming back to it for a quick and easy lunch. It is simply delicious. The flavors are so delicate and refreshing. I've tried to add asparagus in the past but it just throws everything off. Now I make it according to the recipe (minus the olives as I don't like them) and keep it in the fridge to pick at whenever I feel like it! (It never lasts long!!) This is a definite favorite!!"
"Thanks for posting this one. This was an excellent recipe. I didn't think that there was going to be enough vinegar, soy, or worcestershire but it was the perfect amount. The avacados and the olives worked well together. I think its was better after I let it sit for a litte while to let the flavors meld together. Thanks again!!"
"It is 98 degrees in the shade here in the Toronto, and altho' we have A.C. all I could think of was a 'cold dinner'. I could not have made a better choice. What a fab salad! I made it exactly as written, but with only 12 oz. of surimi 'cuz that was the size it came in. We were ooh-ing and ah-ing all through dinner. I just served it on a bed of lettuce with a cuke salad and some sliced tomatoes....plenty for a hot night. Thanks Picholine....this will be served on a regular basis....a great luncheon dish for company too!"
"This was very good. The avocado and olives added a nice touch and made the salad different then other crab salads. I added some extra mayonnaise and a little sugar to taste. Thank you for sharing."
"Everyone who ate this on the 4th of July loved it. I forgot to buy olives and was out of dill (subbed fresh cilatro) but, even without what I'd consider pretty essential ingredients, it was terrific. I served it with Wheat Thin Crisps and they let the flavor of the salad shine through. I can't wait to try it again with ALL of the correct ingredients. This one will be made often. Thanks!"
"This was the best crab salad I have ever eaten! I omitted the avocado because they had a poor selection at the store, but it was still delish! I will be making this over and over again."
"Absolutely delicious! Huge hit as a Thanksgiving appetizer served with crackers. Made a double batch to serve 17 people. My mistake, not nearly enough. Next time will triple or quadruple. "
