Crab Salad w Spring Leeks

From the sustainable seafood section; here’s a salad that works well by itself, or as a filling for a picnic sandwich. It uses those wonderfully sweet spring leeks that seen so plentiful at H-Mart, the local Asian market, and the crab meat on sale at Western Beef. So, grab some crab and a lime and lets get cracking.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pound crab meat
  • 1 lime
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 spring leeks
  • two tablespoons mayo
  • sea salt and pepper

Start by cutting the crab meat into modest chunks. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice over the crab meat. Combine this thoroughly. Then cut the leeks lengthwise and chiffonade. Add the shreds to the crab. cut the red onion into fine shreds and add this too. Now, add the mayo and mix thoroughly.

A simple salad that stands on its own, or nestled inside a kaiser roll. Take it along on your next picnic.
