I developed this recipe at the request of a crab loving friend. I am famous for this dip in Lake Hughes, CA where I resided for over 15 years. I could not attend a party without bringing it with me. (I think I got invited just for the dip!) The recipe has always been a secret... But, now I want to share it with the "Just A Pinch" community. Enjoy!

WARNING: Once you make it...you will be making it for all occasions, partys and just to enjoy yourself. So, stock up on imitation crab or real crab.
