It’s that time of year – the weekends leading up to Christmas are packed with holiday parties. We’ve all been to them and I’ve certainly had my share. Some are more elegant, some can be corporate and stuffy and some can be boozy. I’ve seen friends and coworkers drink too much, karoke too much, dance a little too much – thank goodness I’ve never been guilty of any of those things. Regardless, it’s a great time to break out the festive sweaters, have a guzlet of your beverage of choice and enjoy the holiday spirit with our friends, family and office mates. Here’s what I’m taking to a holiday party later this evening – Curried Crab Salad. I got the idea from a recipe on WholeFoods.com and it’s super quick and easy –
Chop 3 green onions and combine with 2 spoonfuls of mayonnaise along with juice from half a lemon (or lime). Add maybe half a spoonful of yellow mustard and stir in some curry powder, a little cumin and some salt and pepper. Next, fold the crab meat in until just combined. The recipe also mentioned this is better made in advance; so I made it earlier today, hoping the flavors meld together as much as possible before tonight.
Top with a half a sliced red grape, serve on a cracker and there you have it, ladies and gentleman: a delicious, perfect appetizer, rich and packed with flavor. Happy holidays and happy parties.
- 1 can lump crab meat (I got mine at Cosco)
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 2 spoonfuls mayonnaise
- half spoonful yellow mustard
- 1 1/2 – 2 teaspoons curry powder (more/less to your liking)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- salt and pepper, to taste
It’s so easy, combine everything as noted above and top with a sliced red grape. Happy holidays!
