Avocado and Lump Crab Salad – avocado stuffed with a light, lump crab meat – the perfect summer low-carb salad! #glutenfree #whole30 #paleo #lowcarb

Here in Long Island, I’m lucky to have access to fresh crab in my neighborhood seafood store that’s already been cooked and cleaned for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve gone crabbing and you can certainly catch them and cook them yourself, but it’s so much easier to buy it ready. If you don’t live near the coast, canned lump crab can be used instead.
