Open-Faced Crab Salad Sandwiches

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


8 servings

Everyone loved the crab salad my mother-in-law contributed to a family gathering, so I reduced the fat in her recipe for this version. Serve it hot or cold or as a spread for crackers. —Lanie Kappe of Santa Ana, California
