Layered Crab Salad

I am a secretary at the University of Oregon. I love living in Oregon and enjoy cooking with the many foods available in this part of the country. Crabmeat is abundant here and makes a great company dinner.

    This salad is amazing! I doubled the recipe for a 13x9-inch pan since I wanted to take it to a family gathering. Instead of using pea pods, I substituted frozen peas (which I thawed and cooked) and topped the salad with shredded Dill Havarti cheese. Everyone enjoyed it and I'll definitely be making this again!
