watercress, trimmed and chopped
imitation crabmeat, chopped
green onions, chopped
chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
Very light and tasty. I didn't change anything. Just added lime slices.
This salad is great for a light dinner on a summer night. The only thing I added was red pepper flakes to give it a little "kick". I would defiently make it again.
I thought I had imitation crabmeat in the freezer, but it turns out I had run out, so I substituted some Japanese fish cake sliced thin and halved. I also eyeballed the ingredient amounts rather than measuring everything out. It turned out delicious. Next time I'll try it with jumbo lump crab meat!
Husband didn't care for it very much. I didn't mind it, but it might have been because I added a variety of greenage.
This was a fast, tasty, healthy lunch. I made it with canned chicken of the sea pink salmon and it tasted very good and refreshing. I will make this again.
