Crab Salad with Caesar Vinaigrette

In a change from the usual Chicken Caesar Salad, this week I tried the Crab Salad with Caesar Vinaigrette from Food & Wine. I’m presuming that the jumbo lump crabmeat would be best fresh in this recipe, but as I was unable to get fresh crab, I used tinned.

The food

This dish was different to a traditional caesar salad and the crab made a delicious change to the usual chicken.   I was unable to get white anchovies, but I’m not sure whether it would have made any difference to the flavour. The vinaigrette was tasty and had subtle hints of caesar, but that was about as close to a caesar as this salad got.  The roasted red peppers had a lovely sweet flavour. 7/10

Overall

This was an enjoyable salad in itself and the peppers added a great flavour.  7.25/10
