Crab and Avocado Salad

I don’t think you can go wrong combining crab and avocado. The sweetness of the crab pairs so well with the buttery flavor and texture of the avocado. I used crab legs, but canned would be fine, too. For this salad I wanted big chunks of crab, so I used crab legs. I made a simple dressing with mayo, capers, paprika, hot sauce, garlic and cumin. For some crunch I served the salad over a bed of shredded romaine lettuce.
