Crab Salad with Avocado

Avocado originates from South America and first came to Denmark in the beginning of the seventies. The Danes have taken avocadoes in and use them  natural, in soups, as dressing and in sandwiches like this one. Although there are  23 different species of crabs found in Danish waters, we don’t eat that much of them. However, we can buy different types frozen or in cans. This is a classic combination that always good and it’s  easy to make, looks great, and tastes wonderful .
