01Aug2013_1_Captains-Shack_Crab-Salad_Yellow-Tomato_Scene-ModeAh yes! Costco does carry Blue Crab and it is pretty good. Robin wanted me to make some of this dip. I did, but it must rest a while before eating. She waited long enough. So I made her a small green salad with yellow tomato and the crab dip.

Cooking Times
Preparation Time:
20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Comments: The Blue Crab can be bought from Charleston Seafood Company, http://www.charlestonseafood.com or use Phillips canned Blue Crab.
Author Notes: This recipe comes from Bob’s sister-in-law, Marge Young.

1 lbs Crab Meat (Blue Crab)
1 lg Package (8oz) Cream Cheese, softened (No fat works fine)
½ cup Mayonaise …. more or less to taste
1 Tbs Horseradish …. more or less to taste (We like more. Like double the amount.)
½ Lemon, juiced

1. Beat the last four ingredients together …. fold in the crab meat. Hide the dip in the refrigerator until ready to use. (This is the hardest part.) Serve with crackers or small breads.

2. As you can see, this is not an exact science and the tasting part is important and the most fun.

One can really get hooked on this dip. It is that good!! Cheers and enjoy! Thanks Marge for sharing this so many years ago.
