"This is the best Crab salad I've ever tasted. I started using this recipe back in 2010 when it first appeared on the TOH website . I prepare it exactly the way the recipe states - no changes."

"This was really good.. My husband loved it, he said it very good for a light lunch. Just might need to make it a bit wetter when ready to serve. The salad soaked up the dressing that was put on, so much probably have to had a 1/4 more mayo and 1/4 more ranch dressing to it."

"After refrigerating the salad for several hours, I mixed up an extra 1/4 c. mayo, 1/4 c. ranch dressing, and 1/2 tsp dill weed and tossed into the salad just before serving. -Lori in WI."
