Recipe: Crab salad

Crab salad — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

This is a lighter, zestier version of the traditional crab salad. You can substitute lemon juice and wedges for the lime juice and wedges if you prefer.


Directions

In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, vinegar, sugar, cucumber and mint. Add the crab and toss to coat well.

Divide the lettuce among individual plates. Top with the crab mixture. Spoon any remaining dressing over the crab. Garnish with lime wedges and serve immediately.


Ingredients

1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cucumber, seeded and thinly sliced
1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped
12 ounces crab meat
4 cups mixed salad greens (mesclun) or romaine lettuce
4 lime wedges
