Crabmeat cocktail

I made this for our Christmas dinner first course. It was simple and delicious.

Serves 9

2 lbs lump crab meat, picked over to remove any bits of shell
1/2 red onion or 4 green onions, finely chopped
1 celery rib, finely chopped
1/2-3/4 cup mayo (Duke's or Hellmans)
1 heaping tbl dijon mustard
Juice of 1-2 limes, depending on how juicy they are
1 - 2 tsp Luzianne Cajun seasoning

baby lettuce
Sliced grape tomatoes for garnish.

Fold all together gently, using the lower amts of mayo, lime juice, and Luzianne. Add more mayo if it's too dry. Taste and adjust seasonings and  lime juice.

Place some lettuce in martini glasses. Add the crab mixture and garnish with sliced grape tomatoes and chives.
