Sure, you could just mash up a crab cake on top of your salad, but we like this thoughtful recipe for its lighter texture, its flavor, and the added benefit of fresh veggies! Red bell pepper and cucumber bring some fresh crunch to the soft crabmeat, and, because you top each serving with breadcrumbs, you can pick how much—or how little!—you want.
Wine pairing: Try a 2005 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, like the 2005 Huia Sauvignon Blanc.
