My parents were visiting us for the holiday weekend. Yesterday, my mom and I made a tasty crab salad for lunch. It was the perfect light and refreshing crab salad for a Sunday summer lunch!
First, I want to emphasize that in no way should imitation crab meat be use. It wouldn’t REALLY be crab salad! Second, In the photos you may notice that I used 1 whole red pepper. The next time I make this crab salad, I will definitely use 1/2 red bell pepper and 1/2 yellow bell pepper (which I already noted in the ingredient list).
16 oz. can of blue crab claw meat, 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 yellow bell pepper, 5 stalks of celery, handful of fresh cilantro, 3 Tbsp. mayo
Dice the celery and peppers. Chop the cilantro. Mix together cilantro, peppers, celery, and mayo. Lightly toss in the crab meat. Serve chilled.
*If you wish, serve on a bed of mixed greens or on a toasted and buttered bun.
