Grandmother's Seafood Salad

My ex-husband's Grandmother made this every year for Thanksgiving and my MIL makes it at Christmas and now at Thanksgiving since her mother has passed. I asked her one time why this was on her holiday menu and she said that her mom made it every year growing up. They live in south Mississippi, so I guess it's appropriate. I love it.

Moist, creamy and smooth this recipe is perfect. The light use of mayo is great... just enough to hold it together is all you need. This is lovely as a side dish, but would be great as a meal or an appetizer too! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
