With the addition of chopped green onion and cocktail sauce I was able to bring this dip from bland to zippy! I also used real crab since my family doesn't care for imitation. Thanks April.

I was so bummed because this recipe was totally bland. I even double-checked to make sure I made it correctly. I used real crab instead of imitation and ended up wasting it...everyone tried one dip and that was it...

This is a very quick and easy spread, but I found that it was a little bland so I added a little cocktail sauce and wow! - what a difference! I will be using this again over the holidays.

Too bland for our taste

Bland and boring, I had to spruce it up with other ingredients. It gave me a good "base", though.
