kristin's seafood salad

Recipe by

This is my family's favorite recipe for lunch. Either on bread or with lettuce as a salad. I use the fake crab pieces (pollock or cod), and sometimes add shrimp. I don't have specific quantities for the mayo because I just put as much as I like. Some people like more. I have substituted cooked chicken for the seafood and made chicken salad too. I hope you like it!

    I love it just with lettuce or in a sandwich. I think it tastes even better the next day. I have used this same dressing and substituted chicken (for the seafood) and made a chicken salad too. Enjoy!
