    I worked there too and we put celery, chopped red onion and black olives and mayo.

      Wow, sounds like a nice change from how they made it here.

    I too worked there also, 2 stores in Sacramento, Ca. and another in Southern Ca., and as the Deli mgr. I ordered the product to make it and I had made it quite a bit myself and it only consisted of the Krab meat chopped then shredded by hand, celery sliced on the slicer a 1/4″ thick, and mayonnaise. And we couldn’t serve it the same day we made it, it had to sit for a day to let the flavors marry and it really did make a difference. Now this was back in the 80’s, that was a long time ago (8 pieces of chicken back then was $1.99), maybe the recipe changed after that but I don’t know why it would… was one of the top sellers in our deli’s.

      Thank you for sharing your tips. I wished we still had one nearby. They pulled out of the Houston market a few years back.

    Please use some Bays Seafood seasoning in this! Makes the difference!!!

    Not sure where you got your recipe, but I worked for them for 12 years and made that salad almost daily. They actually used yellow onions and also put diced celery in the salad…it makes a difference.

      Do you have the crab dip recipe?

      • Stephanie

        I do not. They moved out of my hometown about 5 years ago.

    This is so delish! I love to sprinkle a little Spice Islands Salt free seasoning “Original” on the mix before refrigeration. Just adds a bit of zing… Another fav is to mix in a bit of cocktail sauce instead of the Spice Islands. Throw on a tomato and add a bed of lettuce and it is my preferred lunch item. Whoop! :)

    Awful, too bland. I do not recommend.

    I appreciate that you found the recipe bland, I can’t change how they wrote their recipe 😉 I personally would add a little chopped onion, and most likely a little fresh dill or some tarragon to jazz it up. Let us know how you jazzed up the salad with your own personal touch.

    It’s even better if you add lots of sliced black olives.
