Appetizers – Curried Crab Spread

One of my family’s favorite appetizers or snacks is crab salad.  I love it spread on toasted bread or simply taking reduced fat Triscuits and dipping them in the salad.  Here is an easy recipe that doesn’t take long, tastes great, and is something you don’t have to feel too bad about feeding your family.
