This is a crab salad that is made without mayonnaise. Hard to believe, but it can be done…and tasty, too
2 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped (minced, actually)
1 shallot, chopped
1 tomato, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
1 cup of basil leaves (no stems)
¼ cup of evoo
2 tablespoons of sherry wine vinegar
1 # of crab
Combine the garlic, shallot, tomato, basil in blender and chop some more. Add oil and vinegar. If you’d like to, add a pinch of salt (Kosher only, please)/pepper. Dressing is set now.
Add about ¼ to ½ cup of the dressing to the crab to moisten it.
That’s it. Be creative. The salad is mayo free and healthy. Enjoy!!
Put this on a bed of lettuce, romaine, watercress, whatever you feel would go well to create a healthy dish.
