Crab Salad Sandwich with Avocados – great summer sandwich!

When the summer heat is unbearable and it’s too hot to cook, you can make this delicious crab salad sandwich with avocados.

I love avocados!!!!  I asked a dear friend, Céire, if she had a favorite recipe using avocados.  She shared this simple and amazing recipe and I have to share it with you – it was that good.  She said she got the recipe from Martha Stewart Living a few years ago.  It only takes a few minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to chill, and one second to devourer!

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon

3/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon crème fraîche

2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot

1 tablespoon minced chives

Freshly ground pepper

8 ounces lump crabmeat

4 leaves red-leaf lettuce

1 avocado, thinly sliced – I really love avocado so I used 2

8 slices brioche, toasted  (I used french bread.)

Mix lemon juice, salt, crème fraîche, shallot and chives. Season with pepper. Fold in crab. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Divide lettuce, avocado and crab among 4 bread slices and top with remaining bread slices.   I didn’t have any brioche, so we used fresh french bread sliced and toasted and ate the sandwiches open-faced.  So delicious!!!
