Creamy Crab Salad Sandwiches

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.

Creamy Crab Salad Sandwiches

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!

Copycat Golden Corral Crab Salad

Easy and delicious. That’s exactly what this copycat of the crab salad at Golden Corral is. You can easily up-size this to make a batch for a crowd without breaking the bank. That’s the point. This is a good, inexpensive dish that is perfect as a side and even better piled up on a bun or bread as a sandwich. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m betting this salad would be good with imitation lobster too! And hey, if you want to put in real crab or lobster instead, go for it!

I made a batch of these crab salad wraps for us to take for a ‘picnic’ at the Exit 76 Antique Mall. We didn’t want to leave the mall for lunch… we might miss out on a deal! Quick and easy bites like these hold up well for the drive down and require nothing special to eat. Just grab one and dive on in!

You can use imitation crab meat. I won’t tell anyone.
