Enjoy this cool salad on a warm Spring or Summer evening!
If you’re like us, sometimes it’s just too hot to eat a big dinner on a summer night! On these nights, we like a good cool salad, like this Lump Crab Meat Salad. Usually, it’s made from whatever greens and vegetables we have around, with a little added protein in the form of turkey, chicken or boiled eggs.
Being in the mood for a different kind of salad, I went shopping. I found a small 8 ounce container of lump crab meat at my local grocery store that was only $12.99. The crab meat around here can go as high as $35 a pound, so I was in bargain heaven! Not only would this be a healthy salad, it would also be budget friendly and very delicious thanks to the lump crab meat!
It doesn’t get much lighter or easier than this!
This salad is light, yet filling thanks to the protein from the eggs and crab and the fat from the avocado. And the only thing that you have to actually cook is the boiled eggs! You can even buy boiled eggs from the store if you don’t want to cook them at home. It’s a bargain too! All in with the salad greens and avocado it fed 4 for about $4.50 per person. The servings are large and full of succulent crab meat. Bon Appetite! I hope you enjoy!Lump Crab Meat Salad, perfectly delicious for lunch or dinner on a warm summer day!Click To Tweet
