This was a great salad! Just watch how much cayenne you put! I skipped the salt and the pepper because the herbs are a wonderful accent to the crab! It's a good thing my family likes it hot!

My wife made this salad for dinner. Served it it on a bed of lettuce. Excellent

yummy, I like the flavor & easy of preparing salad.
This was so yum, but I'm very appreciative to blueicole for the pepper warning! A tsp of cayenne would have been far too hot. I cut it down to about a quarter of a teaspoon and found it to be perfect.I'll definitely be doing this one again!

This was by far the best salad I have ever had. I wanted to eat the whole bowl. Instead of mayonaise I used greek nonfat plain yogurt to cut the calories. I will definitely be making this salad often and using it to impress house guests. LOL!

I added red bell peppers, diced jalapenos and celery and did away with the yogurt. If you like spicy food, the jalapenos add a nice kick
