Irish crab, avocado & mango salad
A delicious recipe perfect for the summer!

225g Simply Better Irish crab meat, well picked over

2 tbsp Simply Better handmade tomato country relish

2 tbsp Simply Better cold pressed Irish rapeseed oil

1 tsp Simply Better Spanish orange blossom honey

1 tsp Simply Better balsamic vinegar of Modena

50ml low fat mayonnaise

1 large, ripe avocado

1 tsp chopped fresh coriander

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp finely grated lemon rind

9 cherry tomatoes, quartered (preferably vine ripened)

2 little gem lettuces, trimmed and shredded

1 small, firm, ripe mango, peeled and cut into thin strips

Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

Set aside 4 teaspoons of the mayonnaise in a bowl to use as a garnish. Place 2 tablespoons of the remaining mayonnaise in a liquidizer or mini food processor. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out the flesh, then add to the food processor with 1 tablespoon of the tomato country relish and the chopped coriander and blitz until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover with cling film and chill until needed. 

Mix the reserved mayonnaise to use as a garnish with the remaining tablespoon of the tomato country relish, the lemon juice and lemon rind. Place in a bowl, cover with cling film and chill until needed. 

Mix together the rapeseed oil, orange blossom honey and balsamic vinegar in a bowl and season to taste. Fold in the cherry tomatoes, cover with cling film and set aside at room temperature to allow the flavours to develop. 

Using two forks, shred the crab meat, discarding any pieces of shell. 

To serve, spoon some of the avocado mayonnaise into the bottom of six glasses. Put a layer of the lettuce leaves on top, then scatter over the mango, followed by the marinated tomatoes. Spoon over the crab meat in an even layer and garnish with the tomato mayonnaise. 

Set on plates to serve.
