For the dressing:

5 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp lemon juice

finely grated zest of ½ lemon

1 garlic clove, crushed

For the salad:

200g white crabmeat

200g brown crabmeat

3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander (or flat leaf parsley, if preferred)

3 tbsp chopped fresh mint

4 spring onions, finely sliced

½ cucumber, peeled and diced

1 large ripe mango, peeled and sliced

100g bag watercress rocket & spinach salad

1. For the dressing, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic together in a jug until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Mix the white and brown crabmeat together in a bowl and pour over three quarters of the dressing. Add the coriander and mint (reserving some for garnish), spring onions and cucumber and mix well together. Very carefully fold the mango through the mixture.
