There is something about crab and citrus that makes for an unbelievable combo. Lump fresh crab, some arugula, grapefruit, orange, and a creamy dressing—can anything be better on a hot, sunny day? It is the perfect refresher after walking around in the sun.
The best thing about this salad (besides the crab) is that you can modify it any way you want—the only thing I would keep would be the fresh crab—head to the local supermarket, pick up some crab and whatever else you want and voila! You have the perfect lunch on a spring or summer day.
I would add some type of citrus fruit (think grapefruit or oranges, watermelon, even mango if you’re feeling adventurous), some fresh avocado, mixed greens—arugula, spinach, or a salad blend—and as for the dressing it’s up to you, but I do recommend sprinkling some fresh lime juice over the top. It’s your own crab salad with a twist (and yes you can say you actually made it—next stop, Food Network’s Chopped).
If you want to try this check out this awesome recipe I found on Pinterest—I promise it’s not as hard as it looks! If you need more variety—particularly food for those hot summer days—make this awesome crab salad, you won’t regret it (a regular salad won’t cut it anymore). But until next time, keep eating!
