"I made this dip for Christmas dinner Appetizer and it was wonderful. Added an extra can of crab, three celery ribs and a jar of diced pimento for color. Everyone went crazy over it. Definitely will make again but probably will only use one bunch of onion and will add a nice pinch of cayenne pepper. Unmolded on an appetizer plate it made a beautiful presentation."
