Crab Salad Wonton Cups

Yesterday I mentioned that the day’s dinner was 3 different types of wonton cups. Today’s snack is another great appetizer and a perfect canapé for parties. These crab salad wonton cups are so good!

The crab salad filling is a snap to make as the wonton cups and crab salad can be made ahead. The cups stay fresh and crisp for 2-3 days and the salad can be kept in the fridge until needed. Just before the party, quickly scoop the crab salad into each cup and serve cold.
