Crab Salad (Neptune Salad)

Have you bought the neptune salad at the grocery store. Well, it is quite expensive. My son has created his own. It tastes, I would have to say better than the store.

1 package imitation crab meat ( you find it buy the fish department of the grocery store)
1/2 cup Celery, Chopped (2 ribs)
1/2 small Red onion, diced
1/2 lemon juiced
2 pinches dill
2 pinches parsley
2 big spoonfuls of mayonnaise (Helmans)
salt and pepper to taste


Brake up crab meat into a bowl to store in. Add remaining ingredients mix and let set in frig a few hours. Keeps 3 to 4 days.

I think the recipe above is missing pepper or some kind of spice. I like to use cayenne pepper. Sometimes these types of salads are garnished with parsley and paprika. Love neptune salad!

I would add about 1/4 tsp. of celery seed to give it a little zip; plus I prefer to use Miracle Whip instead of real mayonaise because of the vast difference in calories, but also because it adds a nice sweet pickle sort of zip too.

I made this Neptune Salad and have to tell you, this is excellent, and way better than getting at the Deli Dept.
