I’m pretty sure I’m addicted to crab salad. And my preferred way to enjoy it is on bread. These creamy salad crab salad sandwiches are exactly what I like the most. Chunky crab (imitation works fine, trust me). Plenty of creamy mayonnaise (Blue Plate is my favorite). And plenty of crunchy onion and celery. And you have to have dill. It’s the perfect combination for an easy, delicious lunch.

If you have fresh dill, by all means use that instead of dry. I’d start with about half of a tablespoon and go from there. I’m pretty much a dill addict, so I’m sure I’d end up adding more. These creamy crab salad sandwiches are great, but they’re even better with more dill!

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
