I received a request for a crab salad. I'd never really made a traditional crab salad (basically crab mixed with mayonnaise)
, but have made various different "fresh" versions, throughout the years.
Below is kind of a fun recipe. It's A LOT easier than it looks. Don't be intimidated by it. The hardest part is cutting the tangerines. The rest only takes a few minutes, requires no cooking and your friends and family will swear you've been slaving away for days! It's little more than a few fresh ingredients, thrown together in the right order, and then pressed, in layers, into a "ring mold".
A "ring mold" is nothing more than a hollow cylinder. They come on all shapes and sizes, ranging from squat wide cookie cutters, to tall and narrow "toilet paper roll" shapes. I've seen expensive stainless steel ring molds and I've seen molds used from PVC pipe sections. I've also seen similar concepts in a variety of shapes, too! The same thing could be done as a square ... or a star, if you have the mold and feel so inclined!
I actually purchased this Ring Mold Set
and use it when I have guests. The weird part is ... one of my favorite things is the tamper that comes with it! I use it to push down and squish all sorts of things. I love my tamper! :)
How To Note:
The first step says to make tangerine sections. You can use the method in this video to make sections (called "Supremes")
