Recipe Theme of the Month: Appetizers - Crab Salad


Recipe Theme of the Month: Appetizers


Crab Salad
This is a great recipe, not just for appetizers, but for meals. This month I'm using it as a stuffing for tomatoes and cucumbers, nice little bite size treats.
Ingredients
8 ounces lump crabmeat
¼ cup mayonnaise
Photo from Taste of Home
http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/crab-stuffed-cherry-tomatoes
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon cream cheese
Salt & pepper
Cayenne pepper to taste (if you like it spicy )
1 stalk celery, finely diced
¼ cup finely diced purple onion
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 dash Worcestershire sauce

Directions: Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Spoon into hollowed cherry tomatoes, or cucumbers, or crackers, or wrap in lettuce leaves. Serve chilled.


While this photo is from Taste of Home, The recipe they use is significantly different, but the photo gets the idea of how to assemble these across. There recipe is for baked stuffed tomatoes, which I am definitely going to try one of these days as well.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
