Crab is a meaty, flavorful fish. It’s also incredibly healthy. Most of the calories in crab meat come from protein, and crab is a great source of B vitamins. Get all those health benefits (and more) in this open face crab salad toast. It includes Greek yogurt instead of mayo, which adds extra protein without the extra unhealthy fats. Avocado adds omega-3 fatty acids, and whole-wheat toast adds fiber. You can enjoy this versatile toast any time of day, and it’s so good that you’ll want to! Eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and make extra so you can enjoy more tomorrow!
