This is a beautiful, fresh tasting salad that went really well with the Recipe #464616 we had for dinner tonight. Because we were having chicken I left off the crab and served it as a vegetarian side. We expect to do some crabbing later in the week, so I think I will make this again using fresh crab as I think it would be amazing.
