Prep Time: 25 min         Total Time: 25 min        Servings: 2

Thousand Island Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Chili Sauce
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped finely
2 tablespoons green onion, sliced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a medium bowl combine the first 5 ingredients; fold in the whipped cream. Cover and chill for flavors to develop.

Crab Louie Salad:
2 fresh Dungeness crab (yields approximately 1/2 to 2/3 cup)
2 cups Romaine lettuce, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/2 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded, diced finely
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded, diced finely
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
3 tablespoons celery, diced finely
2 tablespoons black olives, sliced
dust with paprika
Fresh chives for garnish


Using stemmed glasses or dinner plates for serving, layer lettuce, crab, cucumber, tomatoes, green onion, celery and olives. Top with dressing, dust with paprika, add chives and serve as a salad course for an elegant dinner party or serve in a large bowl for a luncheon with wedges of hard-boiled eggs, julienne green bell peppers and fresh French bread. Spoon dressing over the salad and serve.

This is an outstanding gourmet treat!
