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!
A Tasty Appetizer
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. Some crab dip aficionados also add lemon zest, horseradish, garlic powder, paprika, or Worcestershire sauce for even more depth of flavor.
The best snacks can be enjoyed without worrying about carbohydrates or your diet! Not only is crab dip low-carb, but it's also a great source of calcium and potassium. This yummy crab dip recipe calls for bay seasoning, but if you don't have any on hand you can simply make your own with this recipe. As for spice, add minced jalapeno pepper, hot sauce, or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. If you love a good garnish for a classy presentation, use fresh parsley, cilantro, or chopped green onions.
