Happy happy New Year guys! Today’s recipe is Crunchy Crab Salad – light, fresh and so so tasty!
I hope we all have a wonderful year!
I have finally come back to reality (not that I’ve been anywhere, I simply took some time off) and I’m back at blogging. As you may suggest, I’ve got quite a few tasty recipes to share with you and plenty of new ideas to test. Can’t wait! My mind kind of feel refreshed so I guess I needed that. And to be honest I was very busy during the festive period and couldn’t find time for all the thing I’ve planned so I kind of decided to go with the flow in order to have stress free Christmas and New Year. 🙂
I made the Crunchy Crab salad for New Year’s Eve and I fell in love with it. Crab usually has quite distinctive flavour and the one i used had also a very strong smell. I was certain I wasn’t gonna like it but I was wrong. Combined with carrots, cucumber, chives, red onion and cream cheese it tasted divine. The smell was definitely gone. Don’t get me wrong, you could still tell you were having seafood but the flavour was much more subtle.
Here’s how to make the Crunchy Crab Salad
- 150g tinned white crab
- 1big carrot, chopped
- 1 cucumber, chopped
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 200g cream cheese
- 1/2 lemon, juice only
- fresh chives, chopped
- 1tsp pepper
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
- Serve as a salad, as small bites - crackers or blini.
I served mine (half of the salad actually) on seeded oat biscuits which I’ve been obsessed with. I only found them recently and every time I go shopping I get at least two packs. 🙂 The other half I served on blinis which I had made the previous day. It was actually the first time I made blini and I simply loved them, they were super easy to make too. It’s really up to you how you’re gonna serve the Crunchy Crab Salad. There are so many tasty options so pick the one you fancy.
I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for more quick, easy and tasty recipes coming soon. xx
