@kcflys: Thanks for catching this! The recipe has been updated - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

I should have been more specific. The receipe says "Carefully add HALF of the mayonnaise mixture to the crab mix"------no where does it say what to do with the other half.

@kcflys: In step 4, when you use the crab meat, use all 6 ounces of crab meat. Hope this helps! - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

What happened to the other half of the crab mix??
