Reviews forCrab Salad Tea Sandwiches
"This is a simple but tasty crab egg scald. My family enjoys it and it is prefect for a tea party. Something fun from time to time"
"Outstanding. My New Year's Eve guests gobbled these down and asked for the recipe. I will make these again. The same recipe could be made using chicken instead of the crab, or even shrimp would work."
