Crab Salad-Stuffed Pitas


From EatingWell:  July/August 1992, EatingWell Serves Two

Hold the mayo! We use ingredients that are high in flavor but low in calories—lime juice, ginger, cilantro and chile peppers among them—to make this crab salad both nutritionally sound and absolutely delicious. If you want to skip the pita, serve on a bed of Boston lettuce or mixed greens.

2 servings, 1 1/4 cups salad each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Whisk vinegar, oil, lime juice and pepper in a medium bowl. Add ginger, crab, celery, onion, cilantro and jalapeno; toss well. Line pita halves with lettuce and fill with crab salad.
