Seafood Veggie appetizer

This is a recipe I invented years friend had mixed some frozen mixed veggie side dish with some mini shrimp and fake crab sticks and it tasted good, so I enlarged it with fresh vegetables and added some of the sauce below to eat it with crackers as an appetizer.  I have made it a lot for gatherings and people love it.  I have one of those tomorrow at work and I know that a lot of people will most likely bring Christmas sweets, so I thought a veggie thing might help us not all go into a diabetic coma.  I just have some club crackers on the side, or Ritz, for them to eat with it. 

16 oz size of artificial crab meat chunks chopped up finely.  (you can also add some deveined mini shrimp)
1 cup finely diced fresh broccoli..I mainly use the heads and not the thicker stems
1 cup finely diced fresh cauliflower
2 green onions chopped finely
2 carrots peeled and grated

1 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
1/4 cup Western dressing (you can add a little more if it seems to salad dressingy)
1/4 cup milk
some salt and pepper to taste
Whisk all together until creamy and smooth, pour over the veggie mixture and toss until well coated.  taste for seasoning..this is where I add more salt, pepper or western dressing.  sprinkle with paprika for color.
