This is, truly, one of the top two salads I simply love….this looks special and even tastes better. Serves six starving or eight polite guests
- 1 celery stalk, peeled
- 1 each, red and yellow peppers
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 3/4 lb. imitation king crab
- 2 limes
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise, not salad dressing
- 1/2 tsp. Tabasco
- Pinch of salt
Do all the chopping first. Finely chop the celery, de-seed the peppers and chop fine, chop the cilantro and put all three in a large bowl. Add the peas. Coarsely chop the crab and add to the mixture.
In a small bowl, squeeze 2 tbsp. lime juice from one lime. Into this juice, add the mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce and salt. Drizzle this over the crab mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for no longer one hour before serving.
Now find your sexiest glasses and put the salad into each one. Place 3 crackers on the plate. Put a small wedge of lime on the side of the glass bowl.
