A winner from Cooking Light:
Papaya and Avocado Crab Salad
From - Cooking Light, JULY 2005
Servings - 6

I have tried it with mango and imitation crab and it is just as good.

CL Notes: This refreshing summer salad is also good with other seafood, such as shrimp.

1 poblano chile, halved and seeded
1 medium jalapeņo pepper, halved
1 cup diced peeled papaya
1 cup diced peeled avocado
2/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound lump crabmeat, shell pieces removed
1 garlic clove, minced
6 (6-inch) pitas, split

Preheat broiler.
Place chile and pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined broiler pan; flatten with hand. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel and finely chop; place in a large bowl.

Add papaya and next 7 ingredients (through garlic); toss gently to combine. Serve with pitas.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup salad and 1 pita)
