Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and my mind is going to some of my favorite special occasion foods.  A crab, mango and avocado salad immediately came to my mind.  We had this wonderful salad almost 10 years ago and have since added it to our Mother’s Day menu.  When it comes to Mother’s Day, it is all about tea time and snacking.  We use to make up a batch of little sandwiches and tea cakes, but we soon skipped making tea sandwiches.  However, we all like something different on our sandwiches, so now we just make different toppings and have a “Be Your Own Chef” feast.  We even like to put our toppings on different foods.

While at Walmart, I was looking for some different ideas to use as a base for our toppings and thought about RITZ® crackers. We always have them in the house, as they are my little one’s favorite crackers. I picked up the whole wheat variety for this recipe. In addition I also kept the crab simple. Don’t you hate when you get a crab cake or crab salad and it is all filling? Crab is expensive, so I want to enjoy every single bite of it. I don’t want a mouthful of filler. Specifically  I want light and refreshing sweet crab meat on a crunchy cracker. In addition I decided to top the salad with a little piece of avocado for a buttery finish.  Crab, Mango and Avocado are my favorite trio of flavors.
