Crab & Avocado Salad with Fruit Salsa

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"My crab salad with fruity-salsa flavorings is simple and appealing. Sliced avocados anchor and enrich this lively, colorful dish. If possible, select lump or backfin crab. The larger the crab chunks, the fewer shell fragments to pick out."
