This is perfect for a light but filling meal for two and tastes lovely accompanied with a glass of Chardonnay.



Combine crab, celery, and onion in a medium bowl.

Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Add Tabasco to taste.

Pour the dressing over the crab mixture and toss lightly to combine. Cover and chill for at least one hour. Spread equal amounts of romaine onto the center of two small serving plates.


Halve the avocado, remove pit, scoop meat out of the skin with a spoon, cut into 8 wedges, arrange on the outer portions of the romaine, and very lightly drizzle lemon juice over the avocados and romaine.

Spoon equal amounts of crab mixture over the romaine, top with tomato wedges and serve.

  • 8 ounce package of fully cooked crab meat
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup broccoli, slightly cooked, drained, and cooled (optional)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

This is a simple way to lift the average potato salad. I used imitation crab meat, but you can surely use the real thing if you'd like.

I love cold fresh crab meat salad in a toasted roll or on a bed of lettuce. The cost of fresh crab is so expensive. I found a brand of imitation crab that is "terrific"! It has some crab in it, and is very inexpensive.

This is great as a salad, but also at lunch time as the main dish. Crab meat is a favorite of mine, whether it's the imitation or the real thing.
