We love this super light crab salad because it is made with lime juice, olive oil, cilantro and red onion, then stuffed into a creamy avocado! It’s light, refreshing, high in nature’s best lean protein and perfectly bariatric friendly for your summer! Enjoy in confidence.
1 medium Hass avocado (about 5 oz avocado)
4 oz lump crab meat
2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 grape tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt and fresh black pepper
2 leaves butter lettuce (optional)
*In a medium bowl, combine onion, lime juice, cilantro, tomato, olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt and fresh pepper, to taste. Add crab meat and gently toss.
*Cut the avocado open, remove pit and peel the skin or spoon the avocado out. Season with remaining 1/8 tsp salt and fill the avocado halves equally with crab salad. This makes 2 servings, place on two plates with lettuce if you wish and serve.
