Corn & Crab Salad {+ a Simple & Crisp Giveaway!}

Crab and Corn Salad

Despite what it may look like, I don’t cook every day. Sometimes dinner involves raiding the fridge for delicacies like… cereal and milk. Chips and guacamole. And my all time favorite: cheese and crackers. It’s also one of the things I miss most now that my grocery shopping habits have changed, thanks to Sam being banned from eating gluten and dairy. I suppose I could buy these items for myself, but it just feels mean. I’m trying to be supportive.

With all of these food allergies and dinner upheavals, I was grateful to be connected to the folks at Simple & Crisp; a Seattle-based company that’s making a beautifully packaged ‘cracker’ made exclusively of dried fruit. That’s right – an organic, gluten free and vegan cracker that’s low cal, to boot. It doesn’t solve my brie craving, but it certainly helps solve the wheat dilema.

Corn and Crab Salad

One of my favorite Simple & Crisp flavors is the orange crisp, which has such a lovely zest for summer appetizers. I recently paired it with a fresh corn and crab salad for a really refreshingly light appetizer. It’s a perfect end-of-summer party dish. And now you can try it… freeeee! Just enter the Simple & Crisp giveaway below for a chance to win a sample pack. Go on, scroll down. And good luck!

  1. Wow these crisps are so beautiful and fancy looking! The pairing with a crab and corn salad sounds so refreshing, and add in that it uses cherry tomatoes (so many heirloom tomatoes right now!) and avocado, these are all delicious things! Definitely have to bookmark this as a great canape that is secretly easy to make but looks really impressive and professional1
