Crab and Avocado Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Lime Vinaigrette are a refreshing light meal for hot summer days. To make these wraps we paired the sweet flavor of jumbo lump crab with creamy avocado, some stunning watermelon radishes, cucumber, and a sweet and spicy lime vinaigrette. Bibb lettuce, fresh from the market, was a neat way of holding this vibrant and healthy crab and avocado salad together. —thehungryhounds
