  1. Gently mix the shrimp, imitation crabmeat, cabbage, celery, and green onions together in a large bowl. Stir the mayonnaise and sugar together in a separate bowl until the sugar is dissolved into the mayonnaise; add to the shrimp mixture and gently stir until all ingredients are evenly coated. Refrigerate for 3 hours to allow the cabbage to soften and the flavors to blend.

I made this for salad for a summer luncheon that I hosted, then that evening brought the leftovers to a card game. It's a great, flexible recipe. I used a 1 lb package of imitation crab (chunk...

I had fun with this recipe. I changed the servings via Allrecipes for 6 servings I did not want to make a big batch of salad especially since I was making this for the family. I added 1/4 cup o...
