Mock Crab Louis Salad for Two

"Found the original recipe in Cooking for Two Magazine by Alice Cibulka. I have added a few ingredients and it is a quick and easy refreshing salad for two! I serve on lettuce leaves or serve on chopped lettuce. This along with some bread makes a light and delicious lunch or dinner. Chill time is cooking time."

  1. Very tasty! is what hubby said. You know when that happens, it's a good recipe. I used red pepper instead of green. Other than that, followed exactly. Thanks for posting. Made for Think Pink 2009.
  2. This made for a fantastic lunch. The flavors were wonderfully delicious. The only thing I changed was to put in red peppers and not green and I thought I had lemon pepper but it turned out to be lime pepper, so I added that. I don't think it changed anything. This was such a fast dish to put together. I made it in the morning before work and it was perfectly chilled for lunch. I have to agree with the other poster that the sweetness from the peas and the crab is such a nice contrast to the dressing. I served it on a bed of butter lettuce and I had made some potato salad to go with it. Was perfect. Thanks so much for posting your recipe. Made for the Think Pink October '09 Tag
  3. I used this to make my salad for lunch today and it was so yummy! I loved the sweetness of the peas paired with the slightly tangy dressing. This is a keeper! **Made for Fall PAC 2009**


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
