Delicious Crab Salad

Delicious Crab Salad

This is a delicious and healthy salad that we like to eat wrapped in lettuce. Lettuce wraps are a healthy new trend. You can use lettuce to wrap any salad or rice dish or, for a “light” change, substitute lettuce for bread and wrap your favorite sandwich.
