Crab Salad In Pita Pockets

 

It’s fresh Dungeness Crab season here in the Pacific Northwest. Whole, fresh cooked crab is on sale in all of the local grocery stores.

I picked up a monster sized crab at the store for 5.99 a pound! He weighed in at 1.75 pounds and once cleaned I got a little over a pound of yummy sweet crab meat.

The perfect amount needed for this light and refreshing crab salad recipe. I came across this recipe in Eating Well magazine many years ago (issue from 1992) and once I tried it I knew that it was a keeper.

I haven’t made this recipe in quite a while. Mainly because I put the recipe in such a safe place that I could not remember where it was! Anyone else have this problem?

This happens to me more often than not. I have put so many things in a safe place that by the time I find them again it’s like getting something brand new! Hahaha

 

Anyway, Here goes. Hope you enjoy!
