tomato, corn, avocado and crab salad

recipe: tomato, corn, crab and avocado salad

since i had some extra crab from the avocado crab salsa, i looked for another recipe to try and found this one online. it looked so good that i had to try it! i wanted to share it with k so instead of using hot peppers, i used sweet bell peppers. i do look forward to trying the spicy version as well!
tomato, corn, crab and avocado saladit’s march and still freezing cold but this dish transforms you to a different state of mind – it’s the perfect dish to feel like it’s summer! inside of having it with toast, i topped it on cucumber slices. yum!

i happen to make this dish two years later (almost to the date) so i am getting ready for summer again! instead of topping it on cucumber slices, i topped them in celery. it has an extra crunch — loved it!
