Dilly Crab Dip
Source of Recipe
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2 cup light dairy sour cream
1 cup flaked, cooked crabmeat (cartilage removed)*
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion or green onion
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
1 teaspoon lime juice
Dash bottled hot pepper sauce
Dash ground red pepper (optional)
Fresh dill sprig (optional)
4 cups fresh vegetable dippers (such as carrots, red sweet peppers, yellow sweet peppers, and snow pea pods)
1. Reserve a few flakes of crabmeat for garnish; refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. Stir together mayonnaise or salad dressing, sour cream, the remaining flaked crabmeat, dill weed, onion, lime peel, lime juice, hot pepper sauce, and, if desired, ground red pepper; mix well. Transfer to serving bowl, and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
3. Just before serving, sprinkle dip with reserved crabmeat. If desired, garnish with fresh dill sprig. Serve with fresh vegetable dippers. Makes about 1-1/2 cups dip (twelve 2-tablespoon servings).
*Note: Crab-flavored flaked fish (surimi) is a less expensive but delicious substitute for the crabmeat.
