Imitation Crab mixed with mayonnaise and celery has always been one of my favorite salads. A simple salad that makes a great meal or a side dish.






In a medium bowl, use your fingers

and shred the imitation crab.



Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl.

      • Yup, you’ll give people ideas for Friday meals. We always had meatless meals or fish during Lent and always on Good Friday. My mom used to make a tuna roll with Pillsbury crescent rolls – rolled them out altogether, stuffed it with tuna, cheese, celery – don’t remember what else, and baked it … wonderful. I ate 3/4s of it, my mom wasn’t a fish fan.

      • Good Friday was the only day we didn’t eat meat during Lent. Dad was a fisherman so we usually had perch. I bet the Tuna Roll was delicious! Gosh I wish I had known your mom. She sounds amazing!

      • Yes, my mom was really adamant about having fish on Good Friday for sure. I will look and see if she had that recipe in her binder if you’d like. Sometimes she just had it in her head. It was good and when it was just the 2 of us, she would have one small piece and I’d have the rest … sometimes cold the next day.

      • OK :). My father was German and he liked rollmops which were creamed herring and they were in a jar of this white sauce. That was really the only fish he liked – let’s just say my mom and I never fought him to share the jar.
