Herbed Seafood SaladHerbed Seafood SaladI’ve been making this seafood salad for years, as it’s one of my husband’s favorite cold salads. It’s my re-creation of a popular deli salad, hence the inclusion of imitation crab, or surimi. If you prefer, you can substitute lump crabmeat. serve this as a sandwich, on top of salad greens, or—our favorite way—right out of the bowl with a fork.

Almost all imitation crab meat that’s out there contains wheat, which means it is not gluten-free. THIS BRAND makes imitation crab meat that does not use gluten ingredients, the company makes their products in a dedicated gluten-free facility and is GMO free!
