The paleo diet is anything but boring. There are so many delicious recipes that it’s hard to decide what to do next. One of my favourite choices is paleo crab salad with avocado. It’s healthier than most dishes at the seafood market and has no gluten, lactose, or empty calories.

This flavorful crab salad is ready in just a few minutes and has a light texture that will delight your senses. It’s perfect for a fresh and delicious summertime meal! If you’re on a limited budget, use white fish or shrimp instead of crab. Either way, it will taste amazing!

This tasty paleo crab salad contains avocado, mixed salad greens, garlic, olive oil, fresh cilantro, and other healthy ingredients. Avocado is an excellent source of fats and has only two grams of grams per serving.

My salad is ideal for paleo followers on a low carb or ketogenic diet. It’s also super easy to make and can feed large crowds. Your guests will love it! If you don’t eat it right away, you can enjoy it the next day. The veggies will stay nice and crisp for a long time.

I recommend using organic ingredients when possible. This paleo crab salad also goes well with basil, oregano, garlic, onions, radicchio leaves, and red bell pepper. Mix and match ingredients to create new flavours and surprise your loved ones. Depending on your preferences, you can serve the crab and avocado slices over the greens or mix everything in a bowl.
