Gala Crab Salad

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + chilling


4-6 main-dish or 12-14 side-dish servings

My family thinks this dish is just super, and it looks so nice after it's unmolded. I've substituted shrimp for the crab, and it tastes just as good.


  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1-1/2 cups cracked crabmeat or coarsely chopped imitation crab
  • 1 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Fresh parsley, optional
  • Lemon slices or wedges, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the rice, crab, Miracle Whip, green pepper, onion and celery. Pack into a 6-cup mold coated with cooking spray. Chill for 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Unmold onto a bed of leaf lettuce. Garnish with parsley and lemon if desired.
