A refreshing salad dressed with creamy mayo and greek yogurt sauce spiked with as much Tabasco hot pepper sauce as you desire.



16 ounces imitation crab meat, flake style

1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup green onion tops, sliced

1/2 cup plum tomato, seeded and chopped


1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons greek yogurt

1/2 teaspoon garlic granules

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon, or moreĀ Tabasco hot pepper sauce

1 tablespoon lemon juice


Rinse, drain, and rough chop crab meat.

Mix crab meat and vegetables together in a large bowl.

Make the sauce by combing all ingredients together in a medium bowl, stirring well.

Add the sauce to the crab meat mixture and toss to combine.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.


Salad may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

You may substitute real lump crab meat for the imitation meat, remove any leftover pieces of shells before using.
