crab salad

05.21.10

This cute appetizer came from the Rachael Ray Magazine and now that summer is here, (at least it feels like it) it is a perfect, light snack for warm summer nights.  And so very fitting for a Friday night on the patio! Complete with cocktail of choice of course!

Since the flavors weren’t too overpowering the crab was able to shine through, which was just what I had hoped for. I love the flavor of crab and when paying a pretty penny for it, I want to be able to taste it!

Crab Salad - adapted from Rachael Ray

  • 8 oz crab meat (I found it in the deli)
  • 2 green onions, minced (reserve some of the green tops)
  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 package of Crunchmaster Crackers

Combine crab, onions, mayo, cilantro and lemon juice. Top crackers with crab mixture and reserved onions.

Enjoy your weekend!

    Rachael Rizzle is my homegirl (and not just because we share the same last name!!)!

    I don’t care how cheesey/corny/annoying she is- I LOVE her food! These are definitely getting made in my household, soon!
