Easy No-Mayo Crab Salad

Since changing my diet last year, I am always looking for ways to keep lunches and dinners on the lighter side.   I was asked to put together a recipe with Crab Classic, made with Alaskan Pollock and King Crab Meat, and what I came up with is the perfect combo of delicious flavors.  Crab Classic is fat-free, made in a 100% gluten-free facility and certified by the American Heart Associated as heart healthy.  Win!  Read on to get my recipe for Easy No-Mayo Crab Salad with Crab Classic.

How to use Crab ClassicIf you love the flavor of crab but don’t need the added fat in your diet, Crab Classic is a great solution.  Crab salads are always so delicious but usually not very healthy and typically loaded with mayo.  My version uses no mayo at all!  A little lime juice and olive oil together make the freshest flavor here.

Directions:  Basically, you can adjust this recipe according to your tastes but here’s what I did.  Slice an avocado in half, discard the pit.  Mix your Crab Classic, cherry tomatoes, and red onion together in a bowl.  Lightly toss it with a drizzle of olive oil and the juice of ½ a lime.  Add the dried cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.  Add more lime juice if you like, I did! Then, serve your crab salad in your avocado and ENJOY.

    This sounds like a nice salad. For some reason it makes me think of sunshine and warm weather.
