Now that we offer crab in store...
Bill & I often eat a Jensen family fav....
West Indies Salad
Never heard of it?
Not many have!
What is it?
It's a Southern Crab Salad made with precooked crab and 3 other ingredients.
We love it because it's simple and makes a great snack....or meal! And, there's no wheat or sugar in it - so I can eat it! BONUS!!
And, I swear I see Bill remembering all those grand adventures growing up on the Gulf when he's making it....it melts my heart!
Here's your ingredients:
1 pound can Crab meat, we prefer lump but claw meat can work too
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Water
1/4 to 1/2 cup Oil (we use our GA Grown Olive Oil from our store)
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir gently so as to keep the lumps in tact.
- Refrigerate for 2-12 hours
- Stir gentle before serving
Refrigerate left overs.
Yields a little over a pound.
Bill and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I like it with lettuce, he likes it with crackers. It makes a great appetizer or main course! or snack!
Some variations include:
- Using vegetable oil instead of pure olive oil so the the color stays the color of the crab
- Add avocado chunks
- Top with parsley
What would you add?
How you ever heard of this? I'd love to hear!
