Expert Tips

The Lump grade of crab meat is comprised of broken pieces of Jumbo Lump and other flake pieces. This grade of crab meat is ideal for crab cakes and other recipes where piece size is not important. You can use your favorite crab meat or try shrimp for a change.

Drain the tomatoes to keep the salad from getting watery.To drain tomatoes, place in a strainer after chopping and let stand 10 minutes.

Slim down this salad by using fat-free mayo and turkey bacon.
