crab salad

This cute appetizer came from the Rachael Ray Magazine and now that summer is here, (at least it feels like it) it is a perfect, light snack for warm summer nights.  And so very fitting for a Friday night on the patio! Complete with cocktail of choice of course!

Since the flavors weren’t too overpowering the crab was able to shine through, which was just what I had hoped for. I love the flavor of crab and when paying a pretty penny for it, I want to be able to taste it!

Crab Salad – adapted from Rachael Ray

  • 8 oz crab meat (I found it in the deli)
  • 2 green onions, minced (reserve some of the green tops)
  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 package of Crunchmaster Crackers

Combine crab, onions, mayo, cilantro and lemon juice. Top crackers with crab mixture and reserved onions.

Enjoy your weekend!
