Crab, Mango and Avocado Salad

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Salad

¾ cup diced mango

¾ cup diced avocado

10 ounces Dungeness crab meat

4 tablespoons pomegranate reduction or light syrup

4 tablespoons citrus-flavored vinaigrette

4 tablespoons chive oil (see recipe below)

½ cup micro greens or spicy sprouts tossed in a small amount of the citrus vinaigrette, for garnish

Chive Oil

2 bunches fresh chives

½ cup vegetable oil

Directions:

To create the “tower,” place a two-inch ring mold on a serving plate. Spoon two heaping tablespoons of diced mango into the mold. Layer two heaping tablespoons of avocado on top of the mango into the mold. Finish with 1 ½ ounces of Dungeness crab meat to fill the mold. Press down lightly to set the ingredients. Keeping your fingers or a spoon on top of the mold, apply pressure, and gently slide the ring mold up and off of the salad. Rinse and dry the mold before moving on to the remaining plates. Garnish the top of each salad with the micro greens. Drizzle pomegranate reduction, citrus vinaigrette, and chive oil on the plate and around the tower. Blend the chives and oil in a blender for five minutes. Place the finished oil into a squirt bottle and set aside. The oil may be made a day ahead of time.
