There’s something incredibly refreshing about a well-made crab salad. I remember the first time I tasted it at a seaside café; the flavors were vibrant and the texture was perfect. This recipe brings back those delightful memories and is perfect for a light lunch or a side dish for dinner.


  • 1 lb crab meat (fresh or canned)
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Start by chopping the cucumber, avocado, and green onions. Make sure the crab meat is shredded into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Mix the Salad: In a large bowl, combine the crab meat, avocado, cucumber, green onions, and dill.
  3. Dress the Salad: Squeeze the lemon juice over the mixture and gently toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Chill and Serve: For best results, let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.
