Call this seafood salad meets a baked mini Phyllo cup.
Imitation Crab meat is a great way to incorporate the seafood flair into your party without breaking the bank. And again, to stretch the dollar even further, we used mini phyllo cups.
This appetizer has a nice light and airy feel to it. Great for outdoor events just beware this recipe does call for mayo as well as Ranch dressing so be sensitive to the outdoor heat and sun with any food containing mayo.
The Old Bay Seasoning along with the dill brings out that seafood taste everyone will love!
