i received this recipe from The Best Man at our wedding 30 years ago =) Thank you Gary. My best friend on the planet always asks did you follow the recipe? And my reply is always kind of =) This recipe is no exception. i don't think i've ever met a recipe i didn't tweak. So i pray no one out there will take offense @ my tweaking nature....

No-Cook or Other


1 large
loaf of whole grain white bread
1 c
butter, softened
1 large
sweet onion
eggs, hard boiled, cooled, peeled and dried
3 c
mayo, made w/olive oil
2 11oz can(s)
crab from costco or 4 small cans
2 c
celery, chopped
2 Tbsp
johnny salt
1 tsp

1Soften butter so when you spread it, it doesn't tear the bread [2 seconds @ a time on high in your micro should do it (not melted)]. Lightly butter both sides of bread, stack in 2 stacks on wax paper. Do not butter heels. Trim the crust from stacks. Cut stacks into cubes and put in a very large bowl.
2Chop onion and add to bread.
3Dice eggs and add to bread. Mix well w/a large slotted folding spoon. Cover tightly, refrigerate over night.
4Mix, Mayo, Johnny salt, pepper, cleaned, dried and chopped celery and crab. Cover tightly, refrigerate overnight. About an hour before you are serving the salad combine the the mayo mix w/the bread mix.
