IMITATION CRAB SALAD

Imitation crab - some like it, some don't. Personally, I really like it. This is one of my favorite ways to use it. It's a very flavorful combination of imitation crabmeat, mayo, old bay, dill and capers. It's sweet, tangy and creamy with a pop of caper saltiness and a touch of dill. If you're concerned about salt, leave the seasoned salt out of the mix. This salad is delicious on it's own or on a hoagie roll, and in a tortilla or lettuce wrap. Or... just give me a fork and the whole bowl, LOL!
