what goes perfect with crab cakes?
ok, well what about avocados? healthy alternative to those mayo filled dressings or dips that usually accompany a crab cake right? did i plug my recipe enough in the last sentence? just in case…crab cake.
this dressing not only is a wonderful accompaniment to a crab cake but also any salad. yeah, salad, see my obsession here…anything i can make with or for salad (by the way, a little shameless plugging, here is a great salad).
i found this recipe while fiddling around on my ipad. fiddling? actually i was enjoying some down time (yeah, i actually got some of that) and checking out the newest issue of whole living. whole living is one of my favorite magazines. um, just thought i would throw that out there.
my goal was to make the crab cake…i figured i would just just throw together a mayo based dressing with some lemons and call it a night…but this…this folks made my day. not to mention i have 2 avocados ready to kick it in my fruit bowl.
magazines always give me wonderful inspiration. what inspires you in the kitchen?

- add milk lemon mixture with a pinch of salt and some fresh pepper. blend, chop, grind, whatever you do, for about 20 seconds.
- open up the blender, taste, season, serve.
serve with crab cakes or salad, or both (insert big smile here).
