Cajun Crab Ravigote


"Ravigote" comes from a French word meaning "to invigorate." This easy dish falls somewhere between an appetizer and a salad. It's especially pretty served over a mix of different lettuces.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced green pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced scallions
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced pimientos
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced anchovies
  • 4 1/2 cups lump crabmeat
  • Shredded lettuce (mixed varieties)


  1. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, green pepper, scallions, pimientos and anchovies until well mixed.
  2. Chill thoroughly.
  3. Gently stir in crabmeat; do not break up lumps.
  4. Chill until ready to serve.
  5. Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce.

Yield: 6 servings
