Who needs Swans when I have Richard?!

Don't get me wrong, I love going to Swan Oyster Depot in SF - a great spot for lunch if you get there early enough. But this week Richard was kind (and patient enough) to buy us a whole dungeness crab and then pick out all the meat for our Crab Louis - what a sweetheart! I helped by making the dressings - I do it like they do (if you know to ask) with both Louis and a vinaigrette. Of course it all goes on top of chopped iceberg lettuce and served with saltines. I also added a couple slices of avocado - just gilding the lily here!

Louis Dressing

1/2 cup mayo
2 tablespoons chili sauce (it's in the ketchup isle)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix all together with a whisk.

Mustardy Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons dijon mustard
squeeze of 1/2 a lemon
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
about 1/4 cup good olive oil

Whisk all together in a small bowl.
