"When it comes to cooking, I believe the simpler the better," writes Holland, Michigan's Carol Blauw. "A few years ago, a co-worker told me about this colorful, tasty and, most importantly, easy-to-prepare salad," she says. "It has been a favorite at our house ever since."
“After enjoying this recipe for years, I substituted fat-free mayonnaise and reduced-fat dressing one day,” shares Heather O’Neill from Dudley, Massachusetts. “I was just delighted to find it kept all the same wonderful flavor!”
Crab lovers will get a kick out of this salad that's as eye-appealing as it is appetizing. " I like to add a little crumbled feta cheese, and sometimes I substitute chicken or turkey for the crab," writes Sally Sibthorpe from Shelby Township, Michigan.
"This recipe has been in my husband's family for 100 years," says Clarice Schweitzer of Sun City, Arizona. "The only change I've made is to replace the canned crab with imitation crabmeat. It's always a success at get-togethers."
"I love dill, and when it's in season in my garden, I use as much as possible. I also dry some for cooking in winter," says field editor Mary Steiner of West Bend, Wisconsin. The tangy flavor of dill accents her cool and crunchy seafood salad.
