Recipe: Crab & Avocado Salad

You don't have to use the mold to make these but I love the aesthetics of it.
This is more of a little hors d'oeuvres but if you wanted it as a first course meal I would double it. It is lovely with nice salty (and good quality) tortilla chips. I think if you wanted to make these bite size appies you could easily serve them on top of a chip. Another option would be served on a bed of butter lettuce. Play around...I do!

1 ripe avocado
1 lemon, zested and juiced
4 tablespoons of light mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 green onion, green part only
2 tablespoons finely minced shallot
salt and pepper to taste
Mold (optional)
1 cup fresh dungeness crab

Servings: 4 as a first course, 6 as an hors d'oeuvres

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon zest, mayonnaise and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Add minced shallot and crab and mix well.
In a separate bowl dice avocado and add to a bowl with remaining lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
To assemble take the mold and place in the middle of a plate. Scoop approximately 2 tablespoons of crab mixture and press to bottom of mold. Top with 1 to 2 tablespoons of avocado and a couple of green onions.
