Crab Salad Sandwich

the greatest crab salad recipe ever!

Let us sing…

♫ Sandwiches are beautiful

Sandwiches are fine

I like sandwiches I eat them all the time

I eat the for my supper and I eat them for my lunch

If I had a hundred sandwiches I’d eat them all at once!

Because…sandwiches are beautiful ♫ This song is courtesy of my childhood and the artist Fred Penner.

 

You know who loves sandwiches? Jerry Seinfeld, and he is pretty cool.

You know what else is beautiful? This crab salad recipe.

Try this once and you will be hooked. Make it! Eat it! Love it!

I do, love it that is. I eat it like ice cream. It doesn’t require any bread either, or a sinfully delicious buttery croissant to be a meal. Which is great because I am STILL loosely following phase 1 of the South Beach diet and there is no bread allowed for me! Stay tuned to find some creative ideas on how I avoid eating carbs.

If you make this recipe on a weekend, it will last in your fridge for the entire work week. How cool is that? Vair cool is the only correct answer.

Everyday can be a happy day if you make a crab salad sandwich for lunch!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of imitation crab meat
  • 2 celery stalks diced fine
  • 1 Tablespoon of chives minced
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh dill minced
  • 2 Tablespoons of fat-free cream cheese (It must be fat-free otherwise it won’t blend properly)
  • 1 cup of light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon zest

Method to the Rad-ness:

In a medium mixing bowl add the crab, celery, chives and dill together and mix well.

 
In a small bowl blend the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise together. Sprinkle in the lemon zest.
 
Combine the two into the medium mixing bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour. The longer you let the crab salad chill the better the flavors will be expressed.

This crab salad is great for crackers, bread or simply on its own.
