1 cup fresh crabmeat
One handful of ripe, organic strawberries
Four heaping handfuls of organic lettuce leaves (spring mix, romaine, spinach)
¼ cup macadamia nuts
1 large avocado, diced

Dressing:
¼ cup avocado oil
1 -2 TBSP organic maple syrup
Sea salt

 1. Toss lettuce with dressing.
2. Top with remaining ingredients.

Note* According to Traditional Chinese Medicine this a great salad for those that have a warmer constitution as both raw vegetables and crab are “cold” foods. If you are like me and tend to run cold better to eat this salad when the weather is warm. You can also add some ginger and garlic to the dressing to “warm” up the dish.
