Twenty Minute Crab Delight Salad

Warning: this can be highly addictive!
This is food porn at its best. Plus, six ingredients and twenty minutes to prepare makes this a quick and easy recipe to prepare. 

I do not have any pictures at this time because Bill and I cleaned the bowl out before I could take any. 

Yield: 4-5 servings as a salad


  • 12 oz. imitation crab meat
  • 2 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise Do not use salad dressing, it just won't taste the same.
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery  My mandoline makes this a 30 second job.
  • 1-2 scallions or green onions, thinly sliced 


  • Place cream cheese, mayonnaise, and lemon juice into a small bowl. 
  • Whisk until well blended.
  • Set aside.
  • Place crab meat into a 1 quart bowl and break it apart with your hands.
  • Add the celery, onions, and reserved dressing.
  • Stir until the mixture is well coated with the dressing.
  • Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator until serving time.
  • An appetizer that you can serve with crackers or you can place a scoop on a bed of salad greens for lunch, dinner, or a snack.
