Emmy Award Winning Crab Salad Bites


I love me a cocktail hour so much that I always look for an excuse to host one. Today's 2013 Emmy awards celebration gives me a great excuse to have a couple of friends over for a mini cocktail party - hooray! So I thought these quick and easy festive crab salad bites, which are deliciously packed with nutrients would make a great pairing with some moscato or bubbly while watching the show. 


Ingredients

1lb. jumbo lump crabmeat, or stone crabmeat (or any meat of preference)
1 stalk celery, peeled, and finely diced
4 tsp. finely sliced fresh chives
1/3 cup prepared mayonnaise
3 tbsp. sour cream
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp. stone ground mustard
2 tsp. green onions chopped (to sprinkle on top)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

In a medium bowl, lightly toss the crabmeat, celery and chives.
In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and mustard. Then add the dressing to the crabmeat mixture and stir until just coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.  What's nice about a crab salad is if not using right away, you can refrigerate it until you're ready to serve.

Serve on crackers or in Endive leaves as shown in photos.

Have fun and enjoy the show!
