Seafood Salad

Simple Seafood Salad

Simple Seafood salad is something that I love.  It’s one of my favorite things to buy at the store, but I don’t do it often because it’s what I consider a luxury item.  I have been making crab salad at home for years, so I decided to try my hand at making a copycat of the seafood salad that’s available in the deli at my local grocer.  Making simple seafood salad is, as the name implies, very simple, and I get much more for less money by making it myself.
