This is just so simple to do and is a nice starter. You could always cut up finely a red or green chilli if you like things hot. Best made close to serving

  2. Spoon the crabmeat mixture evenly among avocado halves.
  3. Place avocado halves and lettuce leaves in a shallow serving bowl and season with pepper.

Latchy this was a very nice light salad that went well with our grilled fish meal. I did all a little extra sour cream because it was a little dry. I also sprinkled lemon juice on the avocado before filling with the crabmeat mixture. Thanks for a great recipe.

After tasting I decided this did not need yoghurt or cayenne pepper. I used lemon juice and salt / pepper. A wonderful salad. The delicate crab flavor and avacaco blend beautifully. With just a hint of lemon.

Definately simple to do, but we felt it needed plenty of freshly groung rock salt, and then sprinkled it with a lemon, garlic, mustard dressing as we ate our way through the avocado as we felt it was a bit dry. But a great recipe we'll make again. Oh, and we added a chopped green chilli for that bit of heat!
