"There is nothing special or unique about this ... just a 'classic' crab salad. You can use this recipe in so many ways. Sandwiches, in quesadillas, on cracker/crostini, etc - stuffed in cucumber slices, peppers, celery, endive leaves, or eggs. And, add a few bread crumbs ... and make stuffed mushrooms or, flounder. So, you can see ... A very basic recipe used many ways - just use your imagination. Note: using fresh crab is always better; and, I highly recommend it. However, a good quality canned lump crab meat will also work. This recipe also works well with cooked shrimp, scallops, or lobster as well."
Salad ... Add everything except the crab and pimentos to a bowl; and, mix until combined. I always start with a little less sour cream and lemon juice; because, you can always add more - but, you can't take it away. And, remember ... it is a salad - you can add more of any ingredient if you want; make it your own. These are just the basics I like.
Then, once the base of dressing is combined; add the crab and pimentos; and, stir just until incorporated. Taste and re-season if necessary. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use. I think it is better chilled at least an hour before serving
Again ... On a sandwich, fresh or grilled; quesadilla - or, on crackers as a snack. Stuffed inside celery, endive leaves, cucumber rounds, etc. The list goes on and on. And, great as a stuffing for seafood or mushroom; by simply adding a few bread crumbs.
Serve and ENJOY! ... So, simply have fun with it. It is basically my GO TO Crab Salad Recipe ... and, this works just as well using - cooked shrimp, lobster, or scallops too! ENJOY this classic salad!
