Reviews for Caribbean Crabmeat Salad
"Very yummy! A great take on an old favorite! (Next time I am going to add sliced black olives) :)"
"My whole family loved this and we have had it several times. We didn't add the jalapeno pepper just our taste preference. I have two teenage boys that loved this salad too!"
"This was a great meal. The pineapple adds a sweet taste. The combination of flavors was great. My husband and teenage boys asked for it again."
