Seafood Caesar Salad

Seafood Ceasar Salad at oldfatguy.ca

A friend brought me some imitation crab pieces. I was leery but can’t bear the thought of wasting food. I like to consider myself thrifty. She Who Must Be Obeyed calls it cheap. Regardless, I made a nice Seafood Caesar.

I started by making a Seafood Caesar Dressing. I used Low Fat Miracle Whip but feel free to use regular or mayonnaise.

I mixed the garlic, cocktail sauce, lemon juice, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce, Miracle Whip and Parmesan cheese together and put it in the fridge. This makes up enough dressing forĀ four servings. I was only making two so I had enough left over for a second salad the next day.

I tore up four cups of romaine lettuce. I added 1/2 the dressing and tossed to coat.

I added 1/2 the package of “crab” meat and tossed slightly. You could use 8 ounces of any kind of seafood, shrimp, prawns, scallops, lobster or firm fish.

The Verdict

First, I was wrong about the imitation crab. It was very tasty and had a nice texture. I will buy it for myself.

The dressing was nice with the good garlic hit of a Caesar dressing and the touch of horseradish bite from the cocktail sauce.

This is a quick easy salad that tastes great.
