Avocado and Crab Salad

Back in March, Danimal and I traveled with his sister and her husband to Georgia. My in-laws spent the month renting a cute house on a fabulous island on the coast of Georgia. We had a fabulous couple of days exploring the area and walking the beach. My sister-in-law and I made dinner for everyone one night and wanted to use some of the local products. We had hoped to make it to the fish market but it turned out to be closed. The local supermarket turned out to be our only option... so we weren't able to use the locally caught fish.... but still had a fabulous dinner!

This recipe is so simple and easy... and soooooooooooo good! I can't wait to make it again. Crab and avocado really compliment each other and together, they make a perfect appetizer.

Here are two of my favorite pictures from our trip:



Avocado & Crab Salad
Gina's WW Recipe

1 medium Hass avocado
4 oz lumb crab meat
2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper

In a medium bowl, combine onion, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro salt and pepper. Add crab meat and toss well.

Cut avocado open, remove pit and spoon out avocado. Cut into large chunks and add to crab. Mix carefully, not to mash the avocado. Spoon back into avocado shells and enjoy!

Serves 2


  1. This looks perfect for a fresh beach-side lunch. I'll have to make this when I'm there in a month!

  2. YUM! I love avocado, and crab too. This looks great, and healthy!
