Eastern Shore Crab Salad

Serves 6

1 pound can of jumbo lump crab meat

Salad Dressing:

1/8 tsp paprika

3 Tbl catsup

juice of 1/2 lemon

1/2 tsp prepared mustard

Remove all shell from crab meat, leaving lumps of the same size as much as possible. Place in bowl with celery and sweet pepper. In another bowl mix all the other ingredients to form the salad dressing mixture. Then mix the dressing with the crab meat being careful to keep the lumps of crab meat whole. Refrigerate until ready to use.
