  • Summary

    The New Year always reminds me of seafood. And crab is in season right now and so cheap! I like using both crab and shrimp in this recipe to add extra flare. However, feel free to use just crab or just shrimp. All versions are exquisite! To simplify your life, buy fresh lump crab meat already removed from the shell. If you feel adventurous, buy a whole crab and crack it yourself to remove the meat. This hearty salad is full of protein and vegetables! So you’ll have a super antioxidant punch. The dressing is made with Greek Yogurt instead of mayonnaise for extra protein, less fat, and an abundance of Calcium and Vitamin D-fantastic for bone health! We love eating this salad with some fresh Sourdough bread from San Francisco. No bread? No problem! The salad stands alone on its own! Bring on the New Years with a delicious Shrimp & Crab Salad with Homemade Greek Yogurt-Inspired Thousand Island Dressing and start your year off with super health!e
