Crab Meat and Melon Salad

Category: Fish & Seafood, Soups & Salads


1 pound lump crab meat
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon pepper
crisp lettuce leaves

Black olives or cherries for garnish
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup diced pimento
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 or 2 honeydew melons


Remove any bits of shell from crab meat and drain on paper towels. Place in bowl, toss with lemon juice. Add chopped celery, pimento, green pepper, walnuts, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and onion powder. Toss carefully, cover and chill. Melons should be chilled in advance and sliced according to number of servings needed. Slice melon into rings - one slice per person. Scoop out seeds and membrane; peel off rind. Place each melon ring onto a crisp lettuce leaf; spoon crab meat mixture into center of each ring. Decorate with black olives or cherries if available.
