Really good K-rab salad

A very nice Russian cleaning lady who used to work for us made this for us a couple times. Here's my version of it. It's really good.

Tanya's (Imitation) Crab Salad

  • 1 lb. Imitation Crab
  • 2 cups Yellow Corn (frozen, canned, whatever)
  • 2 cups Green Peas (see above)
  • 1/2 - 1 oz. fresh dill, chopped
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • Mayonnaise (add later, to taste)

How to make it

Cut or tear the imitation crab into bite-sized pieces. Put it in a big bowl. Pour the corn, peas, and chopped up hard boiled eggs into the bowl along with the dill. Mmmm. Dill. Mix it all together. Feel free to add more dill. It is good. You'll see.

Don't add the mayo until you're going to eat it (i.e. Store it in your refrigerator without any mayo). We were instructed to let the salad sit out so it wouldn't be so cold before eating. We add mayo to individual portions instead of to the big bowl.

Now if only I can remember her secret beet salad recipe...
