ok, I am having one of my Bridge groups over for a bridge luncheon, not until July, but am thinking ahead. There will be 8 of us. I always like to serve something very special. I have decided to do a trio of seafood salads. I am doing basic tune, one salad using shrimp and one using crab. I don't want both of them to be pasta based, so need some suggestions. Also would you recommend using lump crab? Thanks for your help.

Hi,

You want this to be a cold dish, correct?

Thanks.

nmnita, it sounds somewhat similar to one I made in the past. I made regular tuna salad, and I used baby salad shrimp for the shrimp salad, and I don't do crab so I can't help you with that one.


For the tuna salad (and for the shrimp salad) it was just your basic tuna or tiny shrimp, finely chopped onion, finely chopped celery, mayo, s&p. I can't for the life of me remember if I put anything else in - oh yeah, I think capers in the tuna salad, and some lemon juice in both. I served each in a starburst cut tomato "cup" that I put on top of some leaves of lettuce that I put on the plate. It went over VERY well (it was a shower luncheon) - but what I liked, it was ridiculously easy and fast. You can do any kind of salad - I just tend to stick to what I know and what I know is pretty middle of the road as I didn't know what everybody's tastes were.

Oh, nmnita, I totally misread the thread title. You want specifically Crab Salad. D'OH! Just ignore me. Everybody does - I'm used to it.

I would start making small sampler salads for preliminary tasting with family. You have plenty of time to experiment. I'd substitute lobster for shrimp as well since the latter seems too ordinary. I wouldn't use pasta in any of them.
