Simply the Best Crab Salad with Mango
1 garlic clove
Combine the garlic, shallot, tomato, basil, oil and vinegar in a blender and puree. Add salt and pepper to taste. You may set this dressing aside for 2 or 3 days before using it.
Add enough of the dressing to the crab to moisten it (you will probably not need all of it; use the rest within a day or two as a salad dressing). Taste and correct seasoning, if necessary. (You may prepare the recipe in advance up to this point; refrigerate in a covered container for up to 1 day.)
Serve the crab with the mango, with cumin crisps on a bed of watercress that you have lightly tossed with salt and extra virgin olive oil.
Pair this with Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay.
