Is there such a thing as too much seafood?
I know, I know. Everything in moderation. But that couldn’t possibly apply to seafood. Right?
It shouldn’t. Seafood is ah-mazing.
In honor of how much I love seafood (because apparently that’s a thing), I’m sharing with you a seafood and cucumber salad that you’ll love. It knocks supermarket crab salad out of the park. Seriously. Store-bought crab salad barely even has crab. But with a homemade version, you can add as much crab as your seafood-loving heart desires. And mine desires a lot.
Here’s what’s great about this recipe:
It requires only 2 steps. Did your jaw drop? You really are only two steps away from enjoying this yummy salad. And the steps? 1. Chop everything. 2. Mix everything. Easy!
You are in control. Do you prefer more crab than cucumber? Or vice versa? That’s the beauty of homemade recipes. You get to control exactly how you want to make it. Personally I like the ratio to be almost similar, with a tad bit more cucumbers.
It’s a low calorie salad that has many nutrients. Crab meat isn’t very high in calories. And most of the calories it does have are from protein. This salad also contains zinc, iron, Vitamins A, C, and B, fiber, antioxidants, and potassium.
Real king crab meat. None of that imitation stuff. Real crab meat is so much more superior and tastes so much better!
If you’ve just been hit by a seafood craving, this salad is absolutely satisfying!
So start incorporating some crab into your diet! It’s filling and great for your health. This quick cucumber crab salad is a great way to start eating crab.
