Crab and Avocado Salad

IMG_9874.JPGDungeness Crab season officially opened last week in California, so to kick off the season I’m starting with this crab salad that is all California – fresh crab, avocado, and citrus. This salad requires the freshest crab possible, so if you can’t get fresh crab don’t try substituting the canned stuff. Thank you to the amazing Patricia Wells for the inspiration.

Ingredients:
1 lb cooked crab meat
1 large avocado, sliced thin
Zest of one lime
Zest of one orange
2 TBSP snipped chives
Drizzle of the Best olive oil you have

Toss crab with zest and chives.

Place 1/2 sliced avocado on 2 plates, fanned out. Season with a little salt. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Top with the crab.

Serves 2.
