Grapefruit Crab Salad Nutrition Facts


1. Line 4 individual plates with lettuce leaves; top with torn greens. Section grapefruit over a bowl to catch juice; set juice aside. Remove seeds from sections. Arrange grapefruit sections, tomatoes, crabmeat, and pepper rings on top of greens.

2. For dressing, in a bowl combine 2 tablespoons of the reserved grapefruit juice, the mayonnaise, yogurt, hard-cooked egg white, catsup, and hot pepper sauce. If desired, stir in additional grapefruit juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. Top each salad with some of the dressing mixture.
