These lettuce cups are a simple, colorful and light way to start your evening. To begin, jumbo lump crabmeat is lightly dressed with a bright and creamy curry and lime-flavored dressing. It's then combined with crunchy cool vegetables and fresh chili for a kick.



  1. Combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and curry powder in a bowl. Stir in the crabmeat, cucumber, cilantro and diced chile. Add the scallions, reserving some of the dark green parts for topping. Season with salt.
  2. Divide among the lettuce cups. Top with the reserved scallion greens and the sliced chile. Serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note

Little Gem lettuce is the perfect size for these apps. If you can’t find it, use Bibb lettuce.
