Maryland Crab Salad
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
14 ingredients
4 servings
This is a personal recipe -- tried and true -- made time and time again. I use this in the good ol summa' time, but can be used during the rest of the year as well. Normally, I buy "cold steamed blue crabs" from our local fish market, that are bursting with flavor after resting in the unique Maryland seasoning. I pick the meat, and make this cooling, refreshing salad. It is also great served on a saltine or toast points. Usually though, I just place atop a garden fresh lettuce leaf, and grab a cracker or two with it. If you get the time, marinate the crab meat in 1 tablespoon of Italian dressing for about 1 hour prior to gently folding together. If you don't get the time, that's okay too! Just *enjoy* You can substitute lobster, shrimp, or even conch meat.
