REVIEW: recipe rating

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.

Made this for my family's lunch on Sat 19 July and when lunch was over they wanted to know why I didnt purchase more from Golden. Corral . It was awesome!!!

Absolutely the best recipe for imitation crab out there, but since I cannot tolerate bell peppers, I omitted them. This recipe was still delicious, but is absolutely GLORIOUS when served like a sammich on a soft potato roll with cold giardinara as an accompaniment. kudos to whomever submitted this!

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

COMMENT:
Can this recipe be frozen

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
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 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!

A nice, simple crab salad. The longer it sits the better it is, so try to let it sit overnight before serving. I felt it needed a little salt to help bring out the flavors more. Other than that, it was perfect!

I have already made this 3 times since last week. I love it, it was delicious. I always eat it at Golden Corral.

Great recipe! Instead of green peppers I added black olives and cubes of sharp cheese. Mmmmm. Turned out great. My husband even liked it and he never eats crab salad!

This was really a great tasting salad and tastes just like the one at Golden Corral. I used lowfat ranch dressing and low fat mayo and it was just as good. Very easy and quick to make, too!
