"This is an excellent recipe. I did add a few more spices and I made it low carb by omitting the croissants. Instead. I stuffed celery sticks with the mixture and served it as an Appetizer. I also had no sour cream so used Cream cheese instead.

This is a very fresh tasting recipe no matter how it is served.

"Delicious. I halved the crab, celery, and onion, but used the same amount of cheese, mayo, and yogurt, for 3-4 servings. Had it open-faced on toasted Italian bread."
