Enjoy this dip as a salad sauce in this Crunchy Apple Crab Salad.

Crunchy Apple Crab Salad:

Mix together in a bowl:

  • 1 pound of crab meat (immitation crab meat works for this, but note that immitation crab meat is a possible source of hidden gluten)
  • 1 apple cubed
  • 1 stick celery chopped

Throw this in a jar for a quick grab and go lunch.
