Go for it, Craig. The beauty/joy of cooking, is putting things together you never thought about, and coming up with a whole new dish/idea.

I thought a salad was a pretty simple thing. The flan has the onion, garlic and eggs (used as a binder in most folks crab cakes). We've dumped the filler bread crumbs. The dressing will be light and I'd bet you would find some of the dressing ingredients in the cakes or the "dressing" served with the cakes (tartar sauce). We've done nothing more than deconstruct a crab cake and serve it in a different form, adding something here and removing something there. Sorta. You watch, some head chef will read this, add it as an appetizer to the menu and make bookoo bucks!

I had a very similar and yummy salad like the crab and mango one.
The one I had omitted the cilantro,Mint, and grapefruit but added red leaf lettuce. It was pretty tasty!

Hot crab dip, kinda like the rangoons, but fry the wrappers without the filling use them like chips for the dip.

My mom used to make a crab marinara--we (the children) didn't get to eat this--we were fed an hour before they ate and were already in bed, but I remember the smell of it....wish she'd let us eat at the "adult" table and try it.

Okay, now you are in real trouble! I love savory cheesecake and hadn't thought of this application.
