This is a sandwich that I make at least once every couple of months. It's so quick and easy, and so delicious! Cool, sweet crabmeat, crunchy celery and a hint of cajun spice in a creamy mayo, piled onto a bed of lettuce on your favorite bun or roll is just a seafood-lovers delight!

    In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, Louisiana Cajun Seasoning and/or Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and a pinch of salt. (You may use more cajun/creole seasoning, if desired; just be aware of the saltiness and the heat of the seasoning.)
