    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, combine the lime juice with the olive oil, vegetable oil, jalapeno, chopped cilantro, honey and garlic.
    2. 2
      Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, toss the crab with 3 tablespoons of the dressing and season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      In a medium bowl, gently toss the avocado with the red onion and 2 tablespoons of the dressing; season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Place a tomato slice on each plate and season with salt.
    6. 6
      Top with the avocado and the crab and garnish with the cilantro.
    7. 7
      Drizzle the remaining dressing on top and serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.
    8. 8
      *To make the same as the cover - spoon chopped cherry tomatoes into glasses; top with the crab, avocado and remaining dressing and serve.
    9. 9
      **Rich crab and avocado demand a white wine with substantial body; at the same time, only a white with good acidity will stand up to Zemanick’s sweet-spicy-tart dressing. Look for the silky 2006 Ramey Russian River Valley wine or the peach-scented 2005 Gallo of Sonoma Estate wine.

      I made this tonight for a starter, didn't need to change anything because the ingredients sounded like they would blend nicely...a little like ceviche....oh sorry, instead of dicing the avocado I stuffed the crabmeat in it....
