Lump Crab - Avocado Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by cpbaker

Inspired by a delicious Crab-Avocado appetizer served at Chicago's famous Gibson's Steakhouse. The key is using good, fresh lump crab meat - I buy mine at Costco and it has always been great.

Very the extra bite the Old Bay gives this salad. This is rich and very satisfying; wouldn't change a thing.
