This is a great cold crab salad that you can quickly toss together. Let it chill and before you know it you have a great recipe that can be served anytime. This colorful crab salad can be made with either real crab or imitation crab. While they will taste slightly different depending on your choice, both versions are very good. Fresh crab is delightful in season; if you want this salad on a budget, try the imitation version. It tastes great, too.
Every time my husband and I go to a buffet , I always have to have the crab salad. I did not have the use of the internet, so I just started checking out the salad while eating it to figure out what may be used to make it. After a few tries I got pretty darn close and I alternate with other spices for different flavors. It is so good and I have taken it to some bring a dish dinners and always came back empty bowl in hand.
