A couple of weeks ago I Googled recipes for salad dressing made with avocados. I made the mistake of trying the recipe right before we were going to eat and the very expensive, organic dressing ended up being poured down the drain. It was too vinegary, too acidic, and I couldn’t detect avocado anywhere in the dressing except in the color. In fact the dressing had no flavor at all. I hated to waste two organic avocados but down they went.
So yesterday when I was contemplating what to do with our leftover Mother’s Day King Crab legs, I thought I’d give an avocado dressing another try.
This time, I made up a recipe. It took all of 5 minutes and it tasted fantastic.
King Crab Salad
*Makes 2 large personal sized salads.
2 Handfuls of Organic Baby Spinach
1 Head of Organic Romaine Lettuce, sliced
A Few Slices of Organic Red Onion, thinly sliced
1 Organic Tomato, chopped
1 Organic Avocado, chopped
2 Medium Organic Carrots, grated
Juice of 1/2 Organic Lemon, for drizzling over the avocado after it’s on the salad
About 1 1/2 Cups King Crab, chilled
Gluten Free Croutons
Divide the first 7 ingredients between two plates. Top with the crab (I pulled mine apart into bite sized pieces), sprinkle with croutons. Top with Creamy Avocado & Dill Dressing.
Creamy Avocado & Dill Dressing
*Makes about 1 Cup
1 Organic Avocado
1 1/2 teaspoons of Organic Dry Dill, you can use fresh if you have it
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
Juice of 2 Organic Lemons
1/4 Cup Olive Oil Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Organic Almond Milk
2 or 3 Grinds of Fresh Pepper
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
That is such a pretty and colourful salad. It looks so pretty and delicious xx
This sounds AMAZING!! Leftover crab meat, what’s that??? 😉
Hi April! The salad looks delicious, and I could it this avocado dressing everyday… 😉
Good job, April! This is one fantastic salad, though I agree with Charlie. How ever did you have left over crab legs? 🙂 I’m glad you didn’t give up on the avocado dressing. It sounds delicious!
One word: wow!
I don’t do crab meat, but this salad looks divine, and that dressing sounds like it would work with a few other ideas I have in mind too! It’s lovely, April!
You don’t like crab? It would work well with chicken too. And you could add lime and cilantro to the dressing. Yum!
Mmm… Maybe I’ll try this tomorrow! Thanks!
No, I don’t like crab or lobster either, and yes, I know I am weird! LOL!
