Scrumptious Crab Salad

The weather is getting warmer!  Finally!  Although admittedly, I don't mind the bitter cold, I DO mind the snow and ice!  You know the hot weather will get here and we will all be whining about how hoooooooot it is, right? HA!

So let me just give you a quick rundown of a few foods my husband strongly dislikes...
bell pepper

The list goes on, HOWEVER.....all of these things are in this crab salad that he deems "BEST EVER"

When my husband and I decided to make this, he wanted it loosely based on his favorite crab salad he had ever eaten from home at a place called "Mulford's Seafood" in Millville, NJ.  Imagine my surprise when he wrote a list of ingredients he wanted in it.  WHAT?  Where is my husband?!?!  I wasn't surprised he didn't want onions, I mean, he has now convinced himself he is allergic to them after all!  He is so adorable!  We tweaked, and twisted, and added and subtracted and came up with a salad he now says is his favorite.   I don't like crab salad, so when I tell you this is "amazing", that is all hubby talking!  Summer time is a huge sandwich season for us.  Cold salads, deli meat, etc.  Anything to not heat up the kitchen!

This is really easy to toss together and the longer you let it chill in the fridge, honestly, the better it gets.  Serve it on a salad, on a roll, rolled up in a tortilla, you name it, you can use it to carry this deliciousness to your lips!  I hope you like it!

12 ounces crab meat (imitation or real)
3/4 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup very finely minced green bell pepper
1/4 cup finely minced celery
1/3 cup finely grated carrots
1/4 cup chopped black olives
3/4 cup Hellmann's Mayo

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Chill for at least 3 hours before serving.  My husband says, "no, it needs to sit overnight".  I served these on buttered and toasted ciabatta rolls!

I hope you enjoy this as much as my dear husband does!!
