Crowd Pleasing Crab Dip

Debbie W


"I can't believe this is canned crab" is the response I always get when I bring this to a party. This is cool , creamy and full of flavor. The lemon really brings out the flavor of the crab. This dip is addictive and is always the first to go at a party!! This takes about 10 minutes to throw together and then chill for about 4 hours.
