Kani Salad


This is one salad that I associate with summer---orange, green, bright and juicy.  A serving of chilled Kani Salad is refreshing on a balmy summer afternoon. A combination of crisp lettuce, cool ribbons of cucumber, ripe mango, kani kama (imitation crab sticks), zesty Japanese mayo, drizzled with Tobiko (orange-colored flying fish roe).  It's a contradiction of textures yet flavors blend together in harmony. It's light but filling.
