Lemony Crab Salad With Baby Greens

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

This delicious Venetian salad is from the May 2005 issue of Bon Appétit. In Venice, it would most likely be made with local crab from the lagoon. Simplicity is the essence of this recipe: make it with only the very best quality ingredients.

What an easy delicious salad -- I had and keep everything but the crab on hand -- so this is a great easy "company is coming dish". We did not eat it over the greens -- we enjoyed on buttery whole wheat crackers and it was delicious! Thanks! [made for potluck tag]
