In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Roast the tomatoes in a baking dish in your oven at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes, then refrigerate for 2 hours to a day. This makes them oh so sweet and very soft.
  2. Gently combine the crab, mayo, green onion, lemon peel, lemon juice and red pepper to make the salad, cover and refrigerate. Allow the flavors combine for at least 1 hour. Option: If corn is at it's peak...why not add some blanched or sauteed corn kernels as well!! Yum!!
  3. When ready to assemble and serve, place a piece of your chosen flat bread on the plate, pile on some crab salad, then other flat bread piece , salad etc until finished. Garnish your plate with the roasted tomatoes (you can use greens as well here) Drizzle the plate liberally with home made or purchased balsamic reduction and serve! Enjoy!!
