I love salads, Husband loves salads, Son not so much. Thankfully, we all enjoy seafood. So this salad had an easy entrance to our table. The orange pepper, kirby cucumber, chili pepper, scallion, and crab was very agreeable, but the grapefruit? That was a new....and a strange addition to the rest of the ingredients. But
I have learned to trust Dorie and her expertise. So I did and created her crab and grapefruit salad. Shop Rite had the lump crabmeat on sale, and wow, that was a lot of crab meat. So I added the whole orange pepper and was glad I did. I decided to bed the salad on a baby greens salad and this added more dimension to the salad. This would be a great salad for Easter brunch. We had it for dinner with steak and baked sweet potato. Son declared it tropical because of the grapefruit. I declared it a success since all enjoyed it. This is a wonderful, anytime salad. But there could be less expensive seafood to substitute for the crab. Like shrimp or imitation crab. Maybe even more flavorful than the lump crab? This is a keeper recipe.
