Thai Style Crab Salad

Today is going to be busy! After work a told a friend of mine I would help him out with painting his new place, so dinner is going to have to be quick. This fresh Crab Salad with Papaya recipe is not only super healthy, it's super easy to put together and impossible to forget! The presentation of this meal is phenomenal and so is the fresh taste. In fact, I think I'm going to double this recipe and bring the left overs for lunch this week! Yumm!!!

Love this! I don't get to use fresh crab meat very often but I would make the effort for this.
