Crab Salad Recipe

In my area, we are fortunate to be able to get fresh crab meat in abundance. However, Hubby uses imitation crab for this dish because it’s perfect for rigging it. Yes, this is Hubby’s recipe and I made it for the first time this past weekend. We use flake style imitation crab meat from Sam’s Club. Because it has no flavor, we have to spice it up.

Are you a fan of crab meat?

Do you shop at Sam’s Club, Costco, or another wholesale store?
