Russian Zakuski Part III: Crab Salad

Russians are renowned for their world-class crab meat charka.  The high quality really does justify the price.  However, when times were/are tough, half the crab meat can be substituted with fresh white cabbage, shredded, gently blanched for 2 minutes and dried before stirring into the crab mix.  This is a quick dish, ideal to add another plate to the zakuski table.
