You can buy fresh or frozen cooked crab meat (if the latter, thaw thoroughly before use) in a mixture of dark and light meat. If buying freshly cooked crabs in their shells you'll need one large crab to produce about the weight specified. If you have them, garnish the dish with crab claws.
15 ml (1 tbsp) lemon juice
15 ml (1 tbsp) mayonnaise
15 ml (1 tbsp) natural yogurt
225 g (8 oz) crab meat
1/2 cucumber, diced
2 tomatoes, skinned and cubed
50 g (2 oz) pasta shells, cooked
cucumber and lemon slices, to garnish
1. Mix together the lemon juice, mayonnaise and yogurt.
2. Combine the dressing with remaining ingredients, except the lettuce. Serve the crab salad on a bed of shredded lettuce, garnished with cucumber and lemon slices, accompanied by brown bread and butter if liked.
