WTF is in Spicy Crab-Meat Salad?

I consulted Good Housekeeping's Book of Salads (c)'58 to find out.
Spicy Crab-Meat Salad
In large bowl, combine 1/2 cup chili sauce, 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing, 2 teasp. curry powder; refrigerate. Before serving, add 3, 6 1/2oz-cans (3 1/2 cups) canned king crab meat (or lobster), 4 cups thinly sliced lettuce; toss. Serve, garnished with ripe olives and radishes, or cooked or canned asparagus spears. Or heap into 6 scooped-out tomatoes.

Wow. The possibilities are indeed endless... Do something fishy this weekend!


  1. Your blog is my absolute fave! Your posts make me wish I was your neighbor so we could get together for fancy cocktails, molded meals and gossip.

    Not sure why my pesky button is giving you trouble. I tested the code and it seems to be working on my end, although it is hard to grab the whole thing b/c it's so darn long. Anyhoo--No worries!

  2. i vote for the scooped out tomatoes.

  3. Anything but canned asparagus! Ugh. But I like black olives :)

    I have that book, it is a classic. Lots of fun stuff.

    Have a terrific holiday!
