ISO help/adivce with cold crab meat dip

I cant seem to find my crab dip recipe~I know you use crab meat from the can (6oz) cream cheese, worshire sauce, lemon, but I can't remember what else. Also how far in advance can I make it?

Not familiar with your recipe but I would have thought canned crab and cream cheese should be okay for about four days, depending on how you store it, maybe longer. So you should be able to make it the day before quite confidently.

Personally, I would also consider adding some garlic or tobasco (or mild chilli flakes) and maybe a snipping of chives as well. Just a thought.

Gosh, am also not familiar with your recipe. But you could add a bit of sour cream. Or mayo. It makes the dip a bit more liquidy - don't think that is a word - but it should be.

How about some onions? Could very finely dice, and I mean very finely dice, a sweet onion. Or add finely diced shallots or scallions.

The scallions would add some color. Which brings me to finely diced red peppers.

Or forget the peppers and add some paprika.

Just a few random thoughts.

Just made a double portion for Xmas, it can be done at least 3 days ahead with no problems.
Lots of stuff goes well with this, some I used were grated cheddar, horseradish, dijon and scallions. We also served it heated as we like it better that way, but cold works.
