Curried Crab Spread

Curry powder adds an incomparable element to mayonnaise-based salads like this one―it's not really a spicy flavor, just a hint of exotic fragrance and a nice golden color that are both highly welcome. Leaving the bell pepper and celery raw gives nice crunchy contrast to the soft crabmeat and creamy sauce. This same recipe works just as well with crab as with chopped cooked shrimp or canned tuna or salmon, and you can make a delicious melt with any leftovers: Put a scoop of the spread on a slice of toasted bread, top with a slice of cheese (cheddar or gruyere works well), and place under the broiler until melted.
