Lightly refreshing with subtle flavours, crab salads are a wonderful idea for a summer lunch.

This collection of crab salad recipes contains some fantastic ideas, from light summer lunches to seafood starters. Crab and avocado are a healthy, classic pairing as highlighted in Andy Waters’ Crab salad with avocado cream recipe. Beautifully plated, the tian of crab is surrounded grapefruit and herbs and dressed with vinaigrette.
