Lump Crab - Avocado Salad

Total Time

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly toss the chopped vegetables with the crab meat - try to minimize breaking up the lumps.
  2. Stir the remaining ingredients together and toss into the crab-vegetable mixture.
  3. Chill at least one hour.
  4. Peel and halve the avocados. Place them on a bed of spring greens or butter lettuce.
  5. Spoon the crab salad over the avocado halves. Garnish with lemon wedges.

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

This is easy to assemble and very tasty. It is equally good with shrimp or a combination of shrimp and crab.
