Crab Salad
Recipe type: Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
This salad can be changed with the addition of more or different vegetables. Salad shrimp, canned or previously frozen, can be substituted for half of the crab to create a mixed seafood salad. We tend to like ours a little dry. Feel free to add more mayonnaise to make it more moist. Cook's Note: If you can only find a 10 ounce package of surimi, it's OK to use the entire package in the salad.
  • 8 ounce package of surimi, imitation crab meat
  • ⅓ cup of finely diced celery
  • ⅓ cup sliced green onions, white and green parts
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup finely chopped mild cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, or to taste
  1. Shred imitation crab into small pieces with your cleaned hands and place in bowl
  2. Add celery, green onions, olives and cheese
  3. In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise with Old Bay seasoning.
  4. Add mayonnaise mixture to meat and vegetables in the bowl and stir until well mixed.
  5. Adjust mayonnaise and seasoning as desired.
  6. This is best when allowed to chill, covered, in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving to allow the flavors to combine.
