Cool & Creamy Crabby Salad with Zing

Kim Biegacki


I love a good crab salad and I love the combo of horsey and cayenne with the creaminess of sour cream and cream cheese topped with chili sauce.

I was so looking forward to making this but when I got it all done and put it in the pita I couldn't get it to look like I wanted it to. So, here you have my entry for a kickin' salad though I am not pleased with presentation I am with the taste. I could have made it much more presentable on a bed of lettuce and so therefore I was frustrated. Next time I make it I will add to lettuce and take pics. Hope you enjoy.
