Plain Salad By Itself
This crab salad tastes wonderful all on its own. If you decide to have this dish as-is, you could serve it on a lettuce leaf to be a bit fancy, or in a pretty bowl.
Macaroni Salad with Crab
If you like to make and eat tuna and macaroni, you will probably like this with macaroni. Add two cups of cooked and drained pasta to this recipe for another culinary delight. Serve this as a side dish. Again, great for a dish-to-pass, or other gathering.
If you are throwing a dinner party, going to a pot luck, or having family over for the holidays, you can’t go wrong with serving this as a dip. I would just make sure to chop the ingredients a bit smaller when making the recipe. It will be easier to serve on a cracker.
Pile this High on a Bagel Sandwich
In the photo the crab salad is piled on top of bagels for a delicious duo. However, if you wanted to have this in more of a sandwich form, you could make mini sandwiches out of Kings Hawaiian Dinner Rolls filled with this would be amazing. Yum! In the last few years, we have had these dinner rolls at every holiday meal.
Once you find a recipe that the whole family loves, it is a good thing. Everyone is smiling when we all agree on the food.
Hope this photo entices you to grab a spoon and dig in. Just like you would at home 🙂
