Prepare the day before your romantic evening so when you get home the appetizer is ready.

8 ounces fresh crabmeat, drained and flaked
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
1 (2-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pinch salt and white pepper to taste
1 green leaf lettuce for garnish
1 small bunch parsley for garnish
1 lime sliced for garnish
1 maraschino cherry for garnish

Press crabmeat between paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Combine crabmeat and green onions in a large bowl; set aside. Combine cream cheese and next 6 ingredients; add to crabmeat mixture, tossing to coat. Cover crabmeat mixture and chill 8 hours. To serve, mount crabmeat mixture on a small tray. Add green leaf, lime slice and cherry. Serve with assorted crackers.
