Dakota's Crab, Tuna & Egg Salad

"Another recipe from real cajun recipes. Submitted by Dakota Delcambre...she writes the following;Most Cajuns follow the tradition of not eating meat on Friday during the Lenton season. This recipe would be great for Lent. Donald writes - Dakato is the great grandson of Isadore Delcambre, This is my son, 8 yr-old Dakota's 1st easy to make lunch recipe. This salad should be served on your favorite sandwich bread along with your favorite extras: lettuce, cheese, etc... Dakota experienced his first crawfish-boil in Washington! (You should have seen him and his siblings). Master Dakota - you make us Cajuns proud."

    GeniusKitchen dot OMG! Thank you for this recipe! I was out of cayenne, and don't like paprika. I also used fresh celery instead of relish and added just a touch curry powder. Oh my it was so good. I knew it would be.

    I used fresh 1 albacore, 2 chicken of the sea, 2 lump crap meat, chopped kosher pickles, yellow onion, garlic, Old Bay and chopped up 4 celery stalks very fine. Everything else I used in your recipe. Then I let it marinate overnight in the fridge. The next day for lunch, I put it on warm buttered sourdough toast with melted swiss cheese, spinach leaves and a beefsteak tomato slice. Then I made hyroponic butter-lettuce wraps with fresh chopped grape tomatoes and brown spicy mustard. Let's just say it's all gone. Thanks for sharing!

    Absolutely wonderful! I added chopped onion and garlic and seasoned with Old Bay. I can't wait to see how it tastes tomorrow after it sits overnight!

    Wonderful! I used lump crabmeat and fresh chopped onions instead of onion powder. It's a cool, creamy salad. Great on rolls or on a bed of lettuce. Thanx for posting!

    Was throwing something together for NYE day lunch, realized last minute that I was out of tuna, subbed a can of white meat chicken with two cans lump meat crab on hand. Still plan to make this again with tuna. Used most of other ingredients listed plus Old Bay, half a jalapeño and yellow onion diced and horseradish mustard. Hubby and I loved it on whole wheat Ritz crackers, plan to get sourdough bread to grill or toast.
