What is it about summertime that makes me crave seafood? This Easy Cold Crab Dip with Cream Cheese & Cocktail Sauce is an old favorite that I would make any time we stayed at the beach. It’s laid back and simple with only a few ingredients, and brings those beachy vibes to anywhere you might be. It’s also keto-friendly and naturally gluten free -bonus!
What’s in this Cold Crab Dip
- lump crab meat
- cream cheese
- quality cocktail sauce
- fresh tarragon
Let’s keep it real – crab meat is expensive! A way I like to save a few bucks is choosing lump crab meat instead of jumbo lump crab meat. You’re going to flake the crab meat with a fork for this recipe anyway. So unless you’re serving crab cocktail, I see no reason to pay up for the jumbo kind.
