This is really delicious and make a great filling for a wrap. I spread the crab salad on the bottom of the wrap and covered it with baby spinach and crumbled feta cheese. My husband told me I have to make this again so it must really be good! I left out the artichokes as I didn't have any on hand and I don't think my husband would have eaten them anyway.
This deserves more than 5 stars--fabulous! I used shallots and feta, roasted a fresh red pepper, and used red-leaf bibb lettuce. Did as exactly as Miller said--and loved every bite of it.
