Celery, finely chopped: 3 stalks

Begin by ensuring that the crab meat is free from any shells. Place it in a large mixing bowl.
Add the cooked shrimp to the bowl with the crab meat.
Incorporate the finely chopped celery, diced red bell pepper, and sliced green onions to the seafood mixture.
In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, fresh dill, salt, and pepper. This will form a creamy dressing for the salad.
Pour the dressing over the seafood and vegetable mixture. Gently fold everything together, ensuring the seafood is well-coated with the dressing.
Chill the salad in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.
Serve the crab seafood salad on a bed of fresh lettuce or with crusty bread on the side. Garnish with additional dill or lemon wedges if desired.
