CRAB CABBAGE SALAD RECIPE

Salads are a great addition to any lunch or dinner. I especially love salads like this easy recipe for parties because you can prepare it the night before and mix it before serving the day of the party. Crab meat with freshly shredded cabbage, corn, peas and cucumbers are such a wonderful combination.

We have family get-togethers often and many times they are last minute. We all bring a dish from home and do a potluck dinner or lunch.This crab cabbage salad is perfect to do for days like that. The crab salad is simple and quick and is a hit with the adults and kids alike. The combinations of the ingredients go so well together and it’s so easy to make! 10 minutes and you have yourself a wonderful cabbage salad!

Step by step for how to make crab and cabbage salad.

HOW TO MAKE CABBAGE SALAD

This salad is such a simple salad to make. Shredding cabbage can be such a tedious task and can get annoying. However, I use a slicer which makes shredding so much easier and quicker. The pieces are shredded fine and the same in size! Other than the cabbage, it’s only the cucumbers and crab there need chopping. You just add the fresh corn (or canned corn), fresh peas (or frozen peas) with dill and the salad is complete.

CORN SALAD

This salad has a great variety of the ingredients, I especially like the corn. I love using corn in salads! It adds so much flavor to salads, this one as well. In this corn salad, you can use canned corn or fresh cooked corn. The corn brings a sweetness to the flavors of the salad. If you haven’t tried using corn in salads, you must try! It’s delicious and you will love it!

CRAB SALAD

This salad calls for crab, you can use different kinds of crab meat. Canned crab, imitation crab, or fresh crab can be used. You can serve this crab cabbage salad as a side, or even just enjoy it for lunch. I especially love this salad in the summertime when you can have ingredients fresh from the garden. Just prepare your salad and when ready to eat, mix the salad with the mayo and you have a delicious and fresh crunchy salad within minutes.
