    I really, really loved this! Mix the may and lime and coriander separately to get a smooth dressing, then add to crab. I used imitation crab, because that's what was on hand, and it was still fantastic. - 6/27/11

    Crab. avocado, cilantro...what's not to like?! No tomatoes or lettuce in the house so I had it on an Arnold's sandwich thin. Mighty tasty! - 1/8/11

    Awesome, and very easy! I'll definitely make this again. I even used imitation crab to save $$ and it was still wonderful! - 8/8/09

    I had leftover crab from crab legs and this recipe sounds certainly healthier then gumbo I was thinking about making. Nice tangy ingredients - 5/19/08
