Crab Salad in Wontons
One of my favorite foods in the entire world is crab and I am always looking for new ways to serve it. This appetizer recipe for Crab Salad in Wontons is similar to a shrimp salad that I make and I decided to try it with crab instead and see how it tasted. Well, let me tell you it is delicious!
I like to use blue crab, which I think is the best, but if you favor another kind of crab meat, I am sure that will work just as well.
This crab salad is also very good stuffed in large pasta shells for a lunch or dinner meal.
