For the Salad:
Crab meat sticks
For the Dressing:
Juice of one Lemon
Peel the cucumber and carrot and then grate through a rough grater or use your peeler to peel thin slices of cucumber and carrot. Place into a salad bowl
Cut your lettuce into thin strips lengthwise and add to the salad bowl together with the corn.
Cut your Surimi crab sticks lengthwise into thin strips too and add them to the salad bowl.
Mix the whole content of the salad bowl well.
To make the dressing mix the regular mayo with lime juice salt and pepper.
Serve the salad cooled. Top with some panko crumbs if you want and pour the salad dressing over the salad.
Kani Salad is made with crab meat and vegetables.
The salad is usually topped with Japanese mayonnaise. I like to use regular mayonnaise mixed with lime juice salt and pepper.
If you get fresh crab meat, use that to make kani salad or use
canned crab lumps
. I tend to use surimi crab sticks, as fresh crab meat is rather difficult to find in the market.
My kani salad is with corn, which is a great addition and change of the regular ol' kani salad which you know from your sushi place.
Try to use a crunchy lettuce variation for this salad to add some bite to it. You can add panko crumbs as a garnish to add little crunch.
I forgot to add the panko to my salad bowl in the picture.
