This is perfect for a light but filling meal for two and tastes lovely accompanied with a glass of Chardonnay.



Combine crab, celery, and onion in a medium bowl.

Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Add Tabasco to taste.

Pour the dressing over the crab mixture and toss lightly to combine. Cover and chill for at least one hour. Spread equal amounts of romaine onto the center of two small serving plates.

Halve the avocado, remove pit, scoop meat out of the skin with a spoon, cut into 8 wedges, arrange on the outer portions of the romaine, and very lightly drizzle lemon juice over the avocados and romaine.

Spoon equal amounts of crab mixture over the romaine, top with tomato wedges and serve.

I love cold fresh crab meat salad in a toasted roll or on a bed of lettuce. The cost of fresh crab is so expensive. I found a brand of imitation crab that is "terrific"! It has some crab in it, and is very inexpensive.



  • 1/3 pkg "Trans-Ocean Crab Classic, an imitation crab (a blend of Alaska pollack & King crab)
  • 1 large celery stalk (minced very fine)
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp (heaping) Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp dill relish
  • romaine lettuce hearts
  • pita pockets


  1. Using about 1/3 of the package of crab meat, put on a cutting board and shred it into thin slivers. Put it in a bowl.
  2. Mince the celery. Add to the bowl.
  3. Add all the spices, dill, pepper, old bay seasoning, parsley and relish and mix well with the mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate.
  4. Ad

  5. Prepare what way you want to serve this with. I love mine on a bed of chopped romaine. The crab meat salad in the middle, with a favorite dressing along the sides. This is a light and delicious lunch or dinner.
  6. For a dinner, you may want to add a hard boiled egg, sliced garden tomatoes and sliced cucumbers. :)

This is great as a salad, but also at lunch time as the main dish. Crab meat is a favorite of mine, whether it's the imitation or the real thing.


  • 1 small box spaghetti noodles
  • 1 pkg. frozen crab meat (flake style)
  • A few raw carrots
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2-3 radishes
  • 1 small can black olives
  • 1 bottle coleslaw dressing


Prepare spaghetti according to package directions. Cut crab meat into small pieces. Add to spaghetti. Chop carrots, peppers, radishes, and olives and add to spaghetti. Pour dressing over all. Mix and chill.

Servings: 10-12
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 0 Minutes
