You can make this Neptune Crab salad in a real hurry by buying a bag of precut coleslaw, 1 package imitation crab meat, 1 can kernel corn, and 1 bottle of premade cole slaw dressing.
All you need to add is the diced green onion, the diced white or red onion and diced celery. This is obviously NOT quite as good as home-made - but it will do in a pinch.

Did you know?

That the Romans worshipped Neptune as a God of the seas and everything in the seas. So, the definition of a Neptune Salad would be one that has "sea food" in it.

Apparently the first actual salad called Neptune was on the menu at a United States West Coast Hotel way back in the early 1900's.

Since then, many versions of this Neptune recipe have appeared all over the world, some using crab meat and others using various other seafood. The main ingredient remains as some type of seafood.
