Easy Crab Salad Recipe

Easy Crab Salad Recipe

When the hot weather of summer rolls around, I prefer not to turn on my oven or stove. I thus make a lot of cold salads to combat the heat and humidity. One favorite salad in my family is my easy crab salad. The plain Greek yogurt and lemon juice offer a tangy taste. I usually use imitation crab meat, but you can also use real crab instead. I usually serve the crab salad with crackers, but you can also make a sandwich or eat the salad plain.

Ingredients

  • 14 ounces of crab or imitation crab
  • 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Directions

  1. Chop the crab or imitation crab into tiny pieces.
  2. Combine the chopped crab, Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, onion powder, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl.
  3. Serve the easy crab salad cold.
  4. Refrigerate any uneaten crab salad.
