Whether you’re using Maryland blue, West Coast Dungeness, or Florida stone in your crab salad, the sweetness of the crabmeat enjoys a little savory embellishment. Get fancy with your salad and go the route of a tuna melt, or take a lighter approach and serve this atop salad greens.

Game plan: You’ll need to make the mayonnaise and hot sauce before you begin. Or just pick up some high-quality store-bought mayo and a bottle of Tabasco.
