I made this especially for DH who loves avocadoes ... and crab. He really enjoyed this recipe and I know I'll make it again - it's quick and easy, and full of healthy ingredients. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.

I made as per recipe for the crabmeat (fresh blue swimmers) but used only 1 avocado for the MIL and I and scaled the mayo back to a half recipe. This is delicious and made a great lunch for the MIL and I. I got about 1 cup of dressing from a half recipe and we used it up mixing it with fresh crab meat and serving in wholemeal/wholegrain bread/rolls. Also flicked it over a green salad - lovely. A very versatile recipe which I will continue to use maybe using chicken in place of crabmeat and serve in lettuce leaves when avocados are out of season. Thank you TeresaS for a great holiday recipe/memory.
