Crab Louie

Crab Louie salad, also known as Crab Louis Salad or the King of Salads, is a type of salad featuring crab meat. The original recipe dates back to the early 1900s and originates on the West Coast of America. The main ingredient for Crab Louie, as the names suggests, is crab meat. The preferred crab is Dungeness Crab, but other crab meat can be substituted. Although variations of the recipe exist, an essential ingredient is a seafood dressing such as Crab Louie dressing or Thousand Island dressing. This dressing is either served on the side or mixed with the other ingredients, depending on which recipe is used. A typical Crab Louie salad consists of crab meat, hard boiled eggs, tomato, asparagus, cucumber, served on a bed of Romaine lettuce
with a Louie dressing based on mayonnaise, chili sauce and peppers on the side. Other ingredients such as olives and green onions have also been listed as ingredients in some recipes.
