This recipe is worth the splurge. It makes a great appetizer for the Drennens' lighter meal, but you can double it for larger main-dish servings too. Saltiness varies with crabmeat and other seafood, so adjust the amount of salt to suit your taste.
Toss together first 7 ingredients gently. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or up to 48 hours. Serve with assorted crackers, and garnish, if desired.
