Dakota’s Crab, Tuna & Egg Salad2006-04-19
- Course: Soups & Salads
Most Cajuns follow the tradition of not eating meat on Friday during the Lenten season. This recipe would be great for Lent. Donald writes, “Dakota is the great-grandson of Isadore Delcambre, This is 8 yr-old Dakota’s, 1st easy to make lunch recipe. This salad should be served on your favorite sandwich bread along with your favorite extras: lettuce, cheese, etc… Dakota experienced his first crawfish-boil in Washington! (You should have seen him and his siblings).” Master Dakota – you make us Cajuns proud.
