This easy Lump Crab Salad is great for a fresh and delicious summertime meal.Though it can be expensive, crabmeat is great for quick and delicious dinners. Substitute canned lump crabmeat for fresh, if you prefer, but avoid using regular canned crabmeat; the meat is too flaky for this dish. Rinse canned crabmeat for the best flavor.
