Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

Imitation Crab Salad Recipe. This is simply the best imitation crab salad you will ever make! Serve it for lunch or as a dinner side. Easy to make, this imitation crab salad is truly fabulous.


Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

This is simply the best imitation crab salad you will ever make! We eat it as our lunch or as a side at dinner. We have served it to friends and relatives, and the response has been a universal “this is great!”. Hubby has refined the recipe to the point that he is happy with it. This is one of my very favorites of his recipes. I hope you enjoy this imitation crab salad recipe too.


If you are wondering what my favorite “Hubby recipe” is, it is this outstanding Chicken Salad Recipe. In my opinion, it is his best recipe ever, and that is really saying something!!

Notes:

• The recipe below uses 1/2 cup of mayo with 1 pound of shredded imitation crab salad. After a lot of experimenting, Hubby has decided that shredding (on a grater) is the way to go when making this salad. It is easier than chopping.

• If you chop your imitation crab (which we have done in the past on this recipe), you may want to cut down the mayonnaise to 1/3 of a cup. When you chop the imitation crab cut it, then cut it again.

• In the same vein, if you like a “wetter” salad, simply add more mayonnaise than required in this recipe.

• You could use real crab in the recipe. However real crab is not sweet like artificial crab is. Keep that in mine.

• Look for made in the USA imitation crab (we found it at PriceRite and WalMart).

Imitation Crab Salad Ingredients:

• 1lb Imitation Crab Meat, shredded
• ¼ cup Celery
• 3 Green Onions (scallions)
• 1 tsp Old Bay
• 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
• ½ cup Mayonnaise
• ¼ cup Sour Cream
• 2 TBSP Tartar Sauce
• 1½ tsp Horseradish Sauce
• 1 tsp Mrs. Dash
• 4 dashes Hot Sauce
• 1 pinch Garlic Powder
• ¼ tsp Black Pepper
