Ingredients

For the crab salad:

  • 1 pound of cooked crab meat
  • ½ red onion finely chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper finely diced
  • ½ green bell pepper finely diced
  • ½ cucumber finely diced
  • 4 radishes finely diced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the stuffed avocados:

  • 4-5 ripe but firm avocados
  • ½ lime

To garnish:

  • Lettuce or salad greens cilantro leaves, chopped green onions or chives, radishes

Instructions

To prepare the crab salad:

  • Mix the cooked crab meat with diced onions, diced bell peppers, diced cucumbers, diced radish, lime juice, olive oil, chopped cilantro, and salt/pepper. The salad can be prepared in advance and kept refrigerated until just ready to assemble the avocados.

To prepare the crab stuffed avocados:

  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the seeds and peel the avocados. Sprinkle each avocado half with a little lime (or lemon) juice to prevent the avocados from browning too quickly.
  • Fill the center of the avocados halves with the crab salad. Serve the crab stuffed avocados over lettuce leaves and garnished with chopped chives (or green onions) and radishes.
