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!

2 Servings
