As you probably know, my family before-me loved polenta and they still do. So this recipe caught my attention, and then we bought the items and yesterday we made it! I loved it & the staff did too! :) Feel free to substitute ready-to-eat-polenta if you'd like. Slice it into rounds (as it looks like a round log) grill, and then top with crab salad. Actually - the whole recipe could all be store-bought-ready-to-eat! However, I doubt that it would taste as great IMHO! ;) CuisineAtHome, Issue #78, December 2009.Total cooking & prep time = 1 hr + chilling.
