I am a big fan of a tasty seafood dip, especially while at a party.  Why not serve up this Cold Crab Meat Salad at your next party?  With a minimal amount of ingredients and easy preparation, even a novice cook can whip this up with ease.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 to 3 tsp prepared mustard
4 tbsp mayonnaise
