Cottage Cheese Crab Salad

This is a great summer main dish. Dijon mustard adds a touch of zing to the dressing. My husband, David, and I especially enjoy this salad on warm days.—Elisa Lochridge, Tigard, Oregon

    This is an excellent recipe! I have made it several times for brunches or buffets and it goes quickly. I plan on making for Easter too. Thank you for sharing!

    I loved it. I used fat free cottage cheese and sour cream. I even put it in a whole wheat tortilla for lunch.

    After coming across this recipe a year ago, I've made it numerous times. It's fabulous with fat free yogurt instead of the sour cream. I use it with my "clean" eating-matched with wheat crackers for a great small meal.
