Special Salad

To 1 lb. of Crab or baby sized shrimp put this in a large bowl, add celery hearts cut on the slant I use the tiny thin pale celery stalks from the center of the celery add one good sized avocado cut in slices salt and pepper all. Now add evoo and your favorite vinegar mine being white balsamic. Toss and allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hrs. Serve over your choice of lettuce mine being freeze, baby arugula top with a slice of tomato. When son-in- law isn't looking I often add anchovy fillets to this as well.

I can just see you doing this too, Kades. Slipping in some anchovies on the sly.

We once went to a "popular" seafood chain resto., the one with the good cheesy biscuits. I ordered a caesar salad. Imagine my disappointment when there were no anchovies across the top. But O My. The dressing, very fresh tasting, not bottled, had a very smashed anchovy background. They did this up right. Just call it a secret ingredient.

I've had that great dressing several time, love it. They hit the nail on the head with this one, but I'd still like some little fishies on top
