There are more times in the year that I don’t have salad greens than when I do. The hubby is working on a plan for us to have lettuces year round but it hasn’t come to pass as of yet. That doesn’t mean I don’t like a salad but instead of a classic I turn to another favorite – a rice salad.  I had a beautiful Dungeness crab and I knew it would make a delicious addition to a rice salad recipe.

I was sent a couple of Dungeness crabs from Anderson Seafoods at no charge. If you are unfamiliar with this type of crab it’s a West coast crustacean that has very sweet meat. They are huge; I used the first one to make a simple garlic crab dinner and one crab fed the two of us quite easily.

  • Cut the orange into supremes over a bowl. Squeeze what remains over a separate bowl to get all of the juice out. Cut the avocado into chunks and add to the bowl with the orange pieces.
  • Add the crab meat.
  • And the dried tomato flakes. Mix gently and let this sit so the flavors can blend.

Make the dressing:

  • In the bowl with the orange juice add the lemon juice, honey and vinegar. Drizzle in the oil while whisking until the dressing comes together. Add salt to taste.
  • Lightly dress the crab mixture.

  • Place about a cup of rice in a bowl, top with half of the crab mixture and add more dressing if desired.

How Was the Rice Salad Recipe?

This salad was so light, bright and delicious I was really sorry to see the bottom of the bowl. We both really enjoyed it and I know I’ll be making it again.

The slightly warm jasmine rice was perfect with the creamy avocado and the sweet crab. The tart orange with the bright dressing brought it all together.

It was so lovely having that crab in the freezer to make it easy to make a meal like this. The crab meat did not taste as if it had been frozen. It tasted as if it had just been caught and cooked. The quality of the seafood from Anderson is very high and I have never been disappointed.

Cook’s Tip: I saved the shells from the crabs for stock. I always save shrimp tails, lobster shells, crab shells, etc. in a bag in the freezer for when I need seafood stock.
