I've been hearing so much about Kani Salad these days that I decided to make my own. Now I know why everyone is talking about it-it's so delicious! With just a few ingredients, imitation crab meat is transformed into the freshest and best salad of the summer. Along with cucumber, mayo, and a splash of hot sauce, this comes together in minutes. This homemade version is better than any I have had out, and I bet you will think so too! My family loved this salad.
