This simple seafood salad uses avocados as the perfect pockets for holding sweet, lime-dressed crab meat. Drizzled with a tangy buttermilk dressing, this makes a tasty lunch idea that's ready in just 10 minutes.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the crab meat, lime zest, coriander and shallot. To make the dressing, mix the lime juice, buttermilk, Tabasco and mayonnaise in a small jug. Season well.
  2. Divide the salad leaves, tomatoes and avocado halves between 2 plates. Fill each avocado with the crab mixture, then drizzle over the dressing.
