The crab cakes can be served with a multitude of different accompaniments. They serve them at Ciera with spring greens and a Chipotle Remoulade. They suggest serving them with baby greens tossed in a light citrus based vinaigrette. The greens and the vinaigrette will be a light and refreshing on the palate, paring well with the rich crab cakes. Prep time includes chilling time
