About

This imitation crab salad recipe made with cottage cheese was introduce to me by my friend and co-designer, Kristen Cook.  In the summer, she brought this incredible crab salad to work.  She would actually double this recipe… which is already a large one… and feed the gang.  I don’t think she ever went home with left overs.   The cottage cheese extends the salad and it’s a flavorful addition to the crab.  Besides tasting delicious… it’s good for you… and kids seem to like it equally as well as adults.
