The ocean flavor of Dungeness meets earthy hominy in this twist on the Mexican soup posole, from chef Aniedra Nichols of Elway's Cherry Creek restaurant in Denver. "Dungeness crabmeat has a natural orange-red hue from the shell that makes the salad look vibrant," she says. You could also use shrimp, scallops, or fat flakes of Pacific cod.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Season to taste with more salt and lime juice. Set aside.

Step 2

Make salad: Put crab, radish, cabbage, hominy, cilantro, avocado, and half of green onions in a medium bowl. Add dressing and toss gently just to coat.

Step 3

Divide salad between 2 or 4 plates, arranging some crab pieces and some radishes on top. Sprinkle with remaining green onions.
