Summer is the best time to find a few new salad recipes, as they are the perfect food to eat on a summer day. They are light, packed with vegetables, and full of delicious flavors! Of course, salads are even better with chilled crab cakes from Box Hill on top. Take a look at these recipes to incorporate into your summer meals!
A simple herb salad allows the delicious taste of the crab cake flavor and texture to shine through. This herb salad needs lettuce, endive, tomatoes, celery, scallions, chervil, and parsley, mixed together in a large bowl. Next, drizzle the salad with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss again. Then you want to make a sauce that pairs well with the salad and crab cake. A simple sauce that pairs well with both is made with 1 cup mayonnaise, juice of 1/2 lemon, three tablespoons of minced dill pickles, one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, ½ teaspoon of hot sauce, two scallions, minced, salt, and pepper.
Tomato Corn Salad
Another great salad to pair with your crab cakes this summer is a tomato corn salad with an aioli fusion sauce. While your crab cakes are the fridge being chilled, prepare your sauce with ½ cup of mayonnaise, grated zest and juice from ½ of a lime, one clove minced garlic, one teaspoon Chile Sauce, and salt and white pepper to taste. Combine all ingredients in one bowl and mix well, then cover and refrigerate until your salad is ready to serve.
To prepare the salad, you’ll need to steam, boil, or grill two large ears of until done (about 6 minutes) and cooled. When the corn is cooled slightly, cut the kernels off with a sharp knife. Combine the corn kernels, sweet cherry tomatoes, one tablespoon of chopped cilantro, seasoned rice vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the seasoned rice vinegar a little at a time until you get your desired flavor- usually not more than ¼ cup. If you make the salad a day before a picnic or barbecue, save the vinegar, salt, and pepper until you’re ready to serve and mix well.
