  1. i actually have 1 package of fake lobster that i brought back from the US, would this recipe work with that? and if so they will probably be amazing kosher lobster rolls!

  2. yes! great idea! for sure try it and let us know

      this is my new favorite salad. I actually served it in wraps that I cut in half. yummy…a little salty so challah or bread absorbes the juice nicely.

      • YAY I am so happy – love the wraps idea and of course you can always pull down the amount of salt :-)

  3. Be careful…most imitation crab meat, still contains products from crabs..

    • As long as you buy the ones that are certified kosher you won’t have a problem. Most kosher markets have it.

        I am absolutely opposed to mock anything that is traif. I do not allow baco bits in my house. I do not make buy or allow mock crab anything, shrimp, nothing. We have enough kosher foods that I do not feel the need to introduce traif flavors into my kosher home. There is just no need. Salmon quiche is perfect for Shavuot. Moroccan fish stew. Grilled salmon. There is so much to choose from why does anyone feel the need to go to the goyim for inspiration and food for our yom tov table? It is not Kiddush Hashem to imitate the goyim. It is the exact opposite. We are specifically told NOT to imitate the goyim – and here you are doing exactly that.

    How do you make mock crabmeat? It is unavailable in Israel.

    This is one of the most popular dishes on my Shabbos tish, My Mom adds in cilantro.

    • WOW WOW WOW and YAY YAY YAY! Thanks so much for letting me know!! As a salad (for Shabbos first course!) is actually my preferred way to serve this recipe. So glad you and your momma agree!!!

    What on earth is kosher crabmeat? What is it made of? Why not just call it creamy tuna salad?

  7. love this! Another wonderful example of keeping kosher and adding a tasty salad to my list of recipes. I love Joy of Kosher! I prefer when you guys have more everyday recipes like this. If I need rabbinical advice, I will go to my LOR, recipes, I come here!

  8. Why not add a little Old Bay seasoning?

    And since I hate raw celery, I use thin sliced bok choy…..

  9. I make this all the time. Fabulous taste. I usually add 1 tablespoon white horseradish rather than capers for the little zing it gives.
