    Crab, Apple, and Hearts of Palm Salad

    Last weekend Lisa and I were on the way to one of our usual dinner spots, when we decided mid-drive to try something new.  We ended up at Cafe Gaudi, a little Spanish restaurant featuring tapas and a few different varieties of paella.  One of the specials that night was a crab salad with apples, hearts of palm, and a light miso vinaigrette dressing.  We were really enamoured of the dish, and attempted to recreate a version at home.

    Lisa says:

    Yum, it’s good!

    Chris says:

    I really like the apples in it.

    Lisa says:

    How close do you think it is?

    Chris says:

    Hmm… if anything, I think we have a lot more crab than how it was served at the restaurant.

    Lisa says:

    That’s the first thing I thought when I saw it — not that I’m complaining; I love crab!

    Chris says:

    We’ll have to refine this further, but you’re right: nothing to complain about here!

    Crab, Apple, and Hearts of Palm Salad
    1/2 lb lump crab meat, finely chopped
    1 gala apple, peeled, cored, and diced
    hearts of palm, diced (equivalent amount to the apple — we used about 1/3 can)
    1 tbsp parsley, minced
    8 paper-thin slices of red bell pepper
    1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
    2-3 tbsp miso vinaigrette (I just whisked together some miso paste and rice wine vinegar)

    Combine all ingredients, enjoy!
