Salpicón (salad mixture) is a common dish in many Latin American countries and you can find different variations of it. One of the most popular is salpicón de mariscos, which takes different kinds of seafood and is really delicious! Today, I am sharing my salpicón de cangrejo (crab meat salad) recipe, which is my favorite because you can use either natural crab or imitation crab meat which is a little less expensive. It’s very easy to make and you can serve it as a light lunch or as a party appetizer. MORE + LESS -
