Using a blender, combine all of the dressing ingredients and blend until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut the tomatoes into 4 thick beef-like slices and put 1 slice on each serving plate. Top each tomato with 1/2 cup arugula leaves.
Fold the crabmeat and avocados together in a bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then put 2 tablespoons of the crabmeat mixture on each tomato stack.
