I used the lump imitation crab instead of the sticks (I still chopped up some of the larger pieces). Definitely let this sit in the fridge for a couple of hours (or overnight is even better). The flavor is good and it has a great texture. A very easy crab salad to make.

Easy crab salad that tastes delicious. Definitely let it sit overnight in the fridge for the best flavor.

question or comment
Can this recipe be frozen
CDKitchen Note: I haven't tried it, but I would think the texture wouldn't be very good when it thawed. Imitation crab meat has a high water content which would cause it to break down in the process.

It definitely needs to sit overnight for best flavor, but once it all melds together it's amazing!

I could eat this all day! It is amazing. I scaled down the serving size though, otherwise I WOULD eat this all day!

I made this tonight and it was awesome! The family loved it. Seafood Salad has always been my favorite part of going to Golden Corral. I never would have guessed Ranch Dressing would be an ingredient!

My kids have always love Golden Corral's crab salad, so when I found the recipe, they were very excited to try it. It was an immediate hit! They loved it and it didn't last long, even though the recipe makes a bunch. Will definitely make it again!
