Crab Salad with Green Peas

Crab And Egg Salad
This unusual crab salad recipe combines the flavors and textures of crab, peas, corn kernels, bread, sour cream and more. The crab salad is served over parsley rather than lettuce for a daintier look. Imitation crabmeat is used in the following crab salad recipe because its flavor blends perfectly with the other ingredients and it holds its shape well. Also, imitation crab salad recipes look appetizing because of the bright color of imitation crab. You can use raw salad peas or cooked peas, depending on what you prefer and what you have available. If you are not keen on peas, use chopped celery or chopped green bell pepper instead.

Imitation Crab Salad With Boiled Eggs

This crab salad recipe can be a substantial meal. You could serve it all on its own. You could also serve small portions as appetizers or as a side dish for lunch or dinner. The eggs really raise the protein level of this salad, so this is a great choice as a main dish on a hot day. Nothing is more refreshing than a cold meal when the weather is hot.

Pea and Boiled Egg Crab Salad

You can choose how you want to serve it. We set it on a bed of flat leaf Italian parsley, but you could easily heap it in an attractive serving bowl and sprinkle a few parsley leaves on top. You could also choose to set it on a bed of colorful lettuce leaves. Lettuce comes in so many colors and varieties now that you could make a stunning presentation.
