Another recipe from real cajun recipes. Submitted by Dakota Delcambre...she writes the following;Most Cajuns follow the tradition of not eating meat on Friday during the Lenton season. This recipe would be great for Lent. Donald writes - Dakato is the great grandson of Isadore Delcambre, This is my son, 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.

Wonderful! I used lump crabmeat and fresh chopped onions instead of onion powder. It's a cool, creamy salad. Great on rolls or on a bed of lettuce. Thanx for posting!
