Bikini Bottom Crab Salad in Avocado Boats

June 30, 2011

Crab salad in avocado boats is a unique way to present a salad.  The citrusy crab salad pairs nicely with the buttery avocado flesh.  This recipe serves two but can easily be doubled or triples.  I like to serve this at dinner parties because it makes guests feel special, as if they are receiving their own gift.  This salad would be a nice addition to any summer menu.
