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

Fresh From Florida

One of the best things about snowbirding in Florida is the Fresh From Florida produce!! There is fresh produce all year long down here, and you can tell by the labeling and packaging that it was grown in Florida. When we hit the local Farmer’s market, it simply says just that: local from Florida (and then they usually have the address of the farm listed somewhere). And when we hit the grocery store, we find the labeled Fresh From Florida fruits and vegetables, as well as locally grown signs.

There are also local markets for seafood, as well as in-store labeled Fresh From Florida seafood. And it just tastes better. Remember my post about Sonny-boy and Hubby ocean fishing and bringing back all that fresh sea bass? Well, one of the best things about being down here is you can buy fresh, local fish at a fish market store, or in the grocery store. Heck, even the restaurants have a “local catch of the day” when we order. If you ever have the opportunity to do some ocean fishing or buy the local Florida seafood when out in the grocery store or restaurant, do it. You will be really glad you did.

Just look for the Fresh From Florida signs and on package stickers in the produce section so you can be sure you are buying Fresh From Florida produce!
