Crab Dip
This is one of my grandmother's recipes that has been a part of our family gatherings for as long as I can remember. It is a must have for us. It is quick, easy, and delicious. It is almost always the first bowl to go empty. This recipe was featured by the Minnesota Vikings as part of their game day apps during my time in Minneapolis.
