Dungeness Crab and Cabbage Salad Recipe


Dungeness Crab and Cabbage Salad

Dungeness Crab and Cabbage Salad is a very delicious and easy-to-make salad that features the outstanding Dungeness crab of the west coast.  Dungeness Crab and Cabbage Salad makes a great lunch or dinner entree as it is a refreshing salad that is very filling and full of flavor, especially crab.

I love Dungeness Crab and can not get enough of it during crab season in Oregon!  If you live on the west coast of the United States, do not miss out on the Dungeness crab season which usually begins in early November.  This crab is considered a West Coast delicacy that is prized for its tender and sweet meat.  According to the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, the species was reportedly named after a small fishing village on the Straight of Juan de Fuca in Washington.

According to James Beard (1903-1985), chef, columnist, and cookbook auther – “Meal the gods intended only for the pure in palate.”
