5-Minute Cold Crab Dip For Parties

We all know that a party can be measured by the quality of its snacks. Nothing is more inviting than a creamy dip to enjoy with tortilla chips or crackers, especially when it features the addicting combo of crab meat and cream cheese. This cold crab dip will get your party started with its tasty blend of citrus, crab, and savory seasonings!

Crab dip is a go-to appetizer, and while hot crab dip is delicious, cold crab dip is even more refreshing and snackable. Either imitation crab or fresh crab works great in this easy crab dip recipe. To add extra taste and texture, feel free to add in some veggies like celery, red onion, or bell pepper.

I like to serve this dip with crackers, tortilla chips, or even crunchy veggies such as cucumber, carrots, or celery.
