Fresh lump crab is a glorious ingredient, sweet, briny, delicate, and meaty all at once. This crab salad from Ayesha Curry (of Food Network’s Ayesha’s Home Kitchen and the new meal delivery service, Homemade) brings lush, juicy mango and silky avocado to the party for a light yet luxurious bite. A lemony dressing accented with cilantro, jalapeño, and honey adds a little spark.
