Okay, we all have them. The "whats for dinner tonight?" GO-TO meal. I found this special recipe in my favorite magazine and "tweaked" it a little bit. This one is my favorite because I can usually find all the ingredients already in my pantry/fridge. Plus, you can substitute your favorite meats/veggies and its still a winner.
Crab and Green Bean Salad (you can also use tuna or chicken breast)
We serve this salad on a bed of greens or in a tortilla/pita. Either way, its good!
10 ounces green beans, trimmed at both ends, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (we've also used asparagus spears cut up)
2 tablespoons coarse sea salt
1 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
4 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cubed
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
8 ounces (about 1 cup) cooked lump crabmeat
Fill a large pot (fitted with a colander) with water. Bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add coarse sea salt and the green beans, and cook until crisp-tender, three to four minutes.
Remove the colander from the water. Rinse the beans with cold water so they cool quickly, helping them stay green and crisp. Drain the green beans and wrap them in a towel to dry.
In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mustard, and fine sea salt. Add the green beans, chives, apple, avocado, and crab. Toss carefully to evenly coat all the ingredients with the dressing. Serves four.
