Crabby Avocado Salad

Crabby Avocado Salad created by Parsley

This is from a South Beach cookbook, but I like it with imitation crabmeat a lot better. The original recipe also calls for the jarred roasted red peppers but I find I don't really miss it if I don't have them. One of my favourites and it's even good thrown in a tortilla with a little lettuce for a sandwich! I will say though, it doesn't keep that well - eat it the day you make it as it get kind of watery and the avocado gets a little mushy the next day. I also usually just wing it with the cayenne, depending how much spice I feel like and I add more cilantro sometimes because I love it!

    I made this to take to work today in sandwich form and it was delicious (work is 2 blocks from home so no worries about keeping it chilled). I used sourdough bread and added lettuce to make a great lunch. The roasted pepper was nice and I liked the addition. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. :D

    This is such a refreshing and cool salad! I made it as posted, but once I tasted it I did add more avocado.....love avocados! And after reading the other reviews, I think this would be even more tasty if I threw in some chopped scallions. Very enjoyable on a warm sunny day! Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
