Pepper Zing Crab Sandwich is made with imitation Crab Meat, Pepper Zing Mayo with Refrigerator Pickled Cucumbers and Iceberg Lettuce for a Vibrant Refreshing Crab Salad Sandwich. It’s super easy to put together, too. Serve it up with a side of Ruffles BBQ Chips and a glass or can of pop.

I’ve got two Crab Salad sandwiches. The other Crab Salad Sandwich is made with a Seafood Mayo. That is an Umami Buttery Rich Crab Salad Sandwich. While this one is a simple, Vibrant, Refreshingly Zesty Crab Salad Sandwich.

You can use the chunks as they are. I find tearing them into a bit smaller pieces more ideal. You can just chop to smaller pieces, should you choose.

Imitation Crab Meat

Use anywhere from 340g-454g of imitation crab meat. Tear it into smaller chunks.

Pepper Zing Mayo is a very simple sauce. Not only here for this Crab Salad Sandwich. But in BLT Sandwiches, Chicken Burgers, and a variety of other Sandwiches, Wraps and even over Rice.

Made with the below ingredients. You can add a bit more Lemon Juice or Salt & Pepper Blend to taste if desired.

Pepper Zing Mayo
  • 1/4 C Hellmann’s Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice, or more
  • 1/8 tsp Salt & Pepper Blend, or more.

This Salt & Pepper combination is a blend that I use almost all the time. Just combine the ingredients and mix well. Use a bit for this Crab Salad Sandwich recipe, and save the remaining to season a variety of other foods where needed.

Salt & Pepper Blend
  • 1 Tbl Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp White Pepper

Use about 100 g of Iceberg Lettuce for about 1 lb of imitation crab meat, or about 1 cup packed. You can certainly add more or less.

Torn Lettuce

Chop, slice or tear the lettuce. Wash and strain well.

These Pickled Cucumbers are just Amazing! It gives the Crab Salad a hint of seasoning and elevates the Zing a bit, too. Alternatively, you can use finely chopped or minced Dill Pickles or Relish, which will give a sweet flavor. If you do have some of these Pickled Cucumbers sitting in the fridge, use these. The flavor is just unreal.

Fresh Refrigerator Pickled Cucumbers

These Pickled Cucumbers need to be prepared in advance. They have a wonderful, classy taste to them.

With the fake Crab Meat & Lettuce mixed with the Pepper Zing Mayo, you get your simple Crab Salad to build your Sandwiches.

This can be enjoyed just as a Crab Salad too. With some Onions & Celery if you want, optionally add a small amount of Pasta too. Double the amount of Pepper Zing Mayo to account for the Pasta added and up the acidity to the desired level for a good Zing. Then throw in some Dill, maybe some Green Onions too. Diced Spam can be added and pairs up nicely. You can also slice the Pickled Cucumbers in halves or quarters instead of chopping fine or mincing.

Just Buttered White Bread is all you need. Although, specialty Breads or Bread Rolls can also be used. Load that Crab Salad on top and slice in half to serve.

Buttered Bread

Just slather on some butter on both slices and top with Crab Salad.

Crab Salad Sandwich with Zesty Pepper Mayo & Pickled Cucumbers

This one uses the Country Harvest Bread. Which has Flax Seeds & Quinoa in it.

For me, I have always enjoyed a Crab Salad Sandwich with BBQ Ruffle Chips. The pairing is just wonderful.

BBQ Ruffles Chips

Just a handful on the side with a nice cold glass or can of Pop.
