Crab meat is usually paired with avocado and the two together make a great combination. This recipe is different because here crab is combined with walnuts and pears to create an interesting salad with varying textures and flavours. This salad is ideal to serve as a first course, particularly on occasions.

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Combine the walnuts, celery, pears, onions, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. At the end add the crab meat.
