If you don’t like imitation crab, you can still make a really easy mayo-based salad like my egg salad with bacon (talk about scrumptious!).

How To Make Crab and Corn Salad

It is literally as easy as mixing everything together. Here’s how to make this delicious salad.

The very first step is to open the can of corn and drain and discard the liquid. Believe me, you don’t want the liquid in the salad. Then, put the corn in a medium-sized salad bowl.

Next, chop the imitation crab into bite-sized pieces. Add the crab to the salad bowl with the corn.

Finely chop the onion and add to the salad bowl. If you want to skip chopping fresh onion, you can buy pre-chopped onion at the grocery store. I also just use my food processer to chop my onions – talk about easy!

Salad Cooking Tips

  • Use your favorite mayo. Both mayo and miracle whip will taste amazing in this recipe.
  • Fresh corn kernels are perfect in this salad. If you recently made corn on the cob, cut the kernels off and put them in the salad.
  • Add chopped jalapeno for a little spice! You can also sprinkle in some cayenne pepper and paprika for more kick too.
