DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine the lime juice with the olive oil, vegetable oil, jalapeno, chopped cilantro, honey and garlic.
  • Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, toss the crab with 3 tablespoons of the dressing and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a medium bowl, gently toss the avocado with the red onion and 2 tablespoons of the dressing; season with salt and pepper.
  • Place a tomato slice on each plate and season with salt.
  • Top with the avocado and the crab and garnish with the cilantro.
  • Drizzle the remaining dressing on top and serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.
  • *To make the same as the cover - spoon chopped cherry tomatoes into glasses; top with the crab, avocado and remaining dressing and serve.
  • **Rich crab and avocado demand a white wine with substantial body; at the same time, only a white with good acidity will stand up to Zemanick’s sweet-spicy-tart dressing. Look for the silky 2006 Ramey Russian River Valley wine or the peach-scented 2005 Gallo of Sonoma Estate wine.
