This is a very easy crab dip and it look great on the buffet table or watching the football game!
It tasty great and your guests and family will surly want the recipe for this one...it can be made 2 days ahead of time...how sweet is that!
This is my cousin Mary's idea that I have tweaked a bit.She doesn't like onion, but I do and I like to add the gelatin, just to give it that non runny texture after it sits awhile. I think you will like this.
