The Tailgater's Handbook Recipe for Crab Salad

We always try to start our season with special hearty football fan food like sandwiches.  One’s choice of sandwich will however, be influenced by the weather forecast.  If it’s to be 90 degrees, people will need lighter fare.  Here’s a great sandwich recipe for the first game.
Crab Salad
This is a great hot weather sandwich filling.
4 cups fresh crab meat
½ cup sliced celery
¼ cup sliced green onions
1/8 cup mayonnaise (light is OK)
1/8 cup plain Greek yogurt (low fat is OK)
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Then pack the salad in a sealable container and store overnight in the fridge.  On game day place the container in your cooler.  Prepare each serving individually at your tailgate. With a serving spoon and fork place portions on your favorite bread or lettuce leaves or put a serving on a plate with crackers that the guest chooses from your cracker and cheese board. This recipe is for 8 servings.
