Creamy Crab Salad

by Josh Theisinger

It's hot outside, and we're cooped up with the air conditioner all day long.  Let's face it; no one wants to go outside in this hot, sticky mess.

But we've got something worth venturing out for - a light and healthy lunch option that is sure to be delicious. Not to mention cool, creamy and.... crabby?!

Introducing our creamy, housemade crab salad. This is not your everyday salad sandwich like tuna or chicken. In fact, this doesn't even come with a bun.

Instead, we mix REAL lump crab meat (you won't find any of that imitation junk around here) with toasted almonds, creamy avocado, roasted red peppers and chives served over crisp butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is similar to its brothers Boston and Bibb but is well above its cousin Romaine.

Butter lettuce has a sweeter flavor than your standard lettuce, and it comes with a broad, flat leaf that is perfect for using as a wrap (hence why this doesn't come on bread). Our crab salad is topped with thick cut slices of avocado and a small drizzle of our housemade dill dressing.

Finished with a few of our artisanal flatbread crackers, this dish is light; it's easy; and it's downright delicious!
