Crab and Shrimp Salad

This is a quick and easy Crab and Shrimp Salad recipe. I modified the original recipe and added carrots and green pepper. You may use vinegar instead of lemon juice. Sugar can also be added. It is used to adjust the sourness of any food. With Miracle Whip alone, the salad tastes good already so if you want to add a tangy flavor, you may use the lemon juice.
1 lb. imitation crab, shredded
1/2 lb. sm. salad shrimp
1 sm. onion, diced
1 tbsp. lemon juice
black Pepper
Miracle Whip
1/4 c. carrots, grated (optional)
1/4 c. chopped celery, finely sliced (optional)
1/4 c. green pepper, finely diced (optional)

Mix all ingredients except Miracle Whip together. Add enough Miracle Whip to moisten salad. Make early in the day then refrigerate to enhance the flavor. Serve with crackers or as a side-dish.
