Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 8 ounces lump blue crab picked for shells
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper minced
  • 1/2 cup red onion minced
  • 1 large jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 2 cups mix greens
  • 4 tablespoons Sweet Miso Dressing

Instructions

  1. In another bowl combine crab meat, bell pepper, jalapenos and red onion. Mix gently to avoid breaking up any of the lump crab meat. I used the food processor to mince my veggies- just saved a little bit of time.
  2. Cut avocado down the center and halve. Using a large spoon, gently scoop out the avocado halve from the skin in one piece. Repeat for the second side.
  3. Arrange a bed of spring mix lettuce on two plates. Place 2 avocado halves on top of each bed of lettuce. Spoon crab into the pit wells of the avocados. Drizzle with sweet miso dressing. Serve!
