Crab Ceviche

Rating: 4.5 stars 235
This has always been a crowd pleaser in my home. This is wonderful as an appetizer served on tostadas or even with tortilla chips. Make sure to refrigerate before you serve, it tastes best when very cold. I like to serve on tostadas with a thin layer of mayonnaise for a nice refreshing lunch.

Mel's Crab Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 224
I tried for years to duplicate the crab salad that was made in the seafood market i used to work for, but never could. However, I came up with this one and prefer it a whole lot more. My daughter will hide with the batch I make and eat it all. She doesn't like to share. Serve with club-style crackers.

This is a variation of the classic salad. Get your hands on the freshest Dungeness crab possible. It takes a little time to put this salad together, but for an elegant lunch it really pays off!

Great deli-like salad. Our family never seems to get tired of it! You may use low-fat sour cream and mayonnaise if you wish. Serve on lettuce leaves with tomato wedges for a garnish.
