I signed up just to review this recipe because this is now my favorite thing to eat! From the start, I substituted Old Bay for the sugar - there's enough sweetness in the crab already - and it worked out great. I use equal amounts of light mayo, fat free sour cream, and light ranch, just enough to coat the crab, not gloopy. I also use a ton more celery and parsley and add some finely chopped green onion.
Don't skimp on the fresh parsley!!! When you first taste it, you should think "Wow, I added way too much parsley." If you don't, add more. As it sits overnight, the flavors combine and the parsley really makes the crab flavors pop, and balances out the green onion in a beautiful way.
I struggled a bit at first with getting the crab to the right size. I tried chopping it, then tearing it by hand, and finally tried a potato masher, and this makes it so simple! Now, I just dump the crab in the bottom, throw the rest of the ingredients on top, then mash it to break up the crab, while thoroughly combining all the other ingredients. So easy and delicious!
