Crab Louie Salad Recipe

A Crab Louie Salad Recipe is very easy to prepare - just because it's famous doesn't mean that it's difficult. You can prepare the Crab Louie dressing below or you can choose a bottled variety.

This simple Crab Louie recipe originated from the western coast of United States, using the Dungeness Crab. It can however be made with any type of crab meat, including canned crab.

Over the years various versions of this easy Crab Louie seafood recipe have appeared. I have provided as close to the original as I could find.

Feel free to omit some ingredients or substitute your favourites.

The dressing recipe is very similar to Thousand Island which was quite popular back then - so you could use the bottled type if you are in a hurry.

This dinner salad recipe is a complete and very filling meal. Serve some sliced French baguette alongside or some fresh dinner rolls.
