Buffet Style Creamy Crab Salad
A light creamy crab salad that I could not find A close recipe Anywhere. My grandmother used to make this to go on crackers as an appetizer or on a bed of lettuce. I have found this in one chinese buffet and several others that didnt taste right. Refrigerate til next day for best flavor!! I could eat the whole bowl myself! Mostly found made with Imitation crab but you can try with fresh.(larger recipe because it holds well refrigerated and tastes better each day) Can be halfed but you will wish you had more the third day!


of flaked imitation crabmeat baby shrimp (optional) one stalks celery, chopped small half onion, chopped small (about 1/8 c.) light mayonnaise evaporated milk sugar salt and pepper
