This high- pro­tein, low- cal crabav­o­cado combo is a snap to make and a treat to eat.

Ev­ery so of­ten Chef Jean­nette comes up with ideas to put some of my fa­vorite foods to­gether in a way I’d never think of do­ing— and the sheer magic of the re­sult blows my mind. And this recipe is def­i­nitely one of those times.

If you’ve seen the cover of my book Smart Fat, you al­ready know what I think of avocados. They’re one of the great­est foods on the planet. Most peo­ple know that avocados are rich in healthy mo­noun­sat­u­rated fat, but you might not know that they’ re also fiber heavy­weights (9 grams in a sin­gle Cal­i­for­nia av­o­cado, and a whop­ping 15 grams in a cup of purée).

The fresh crab­meat in this lovely “Craba­cado” sum­mer salad recipe is high- pro­tein and low- calo­rie. It’s fur­ther en­hanced by the ad­di­tion of creamy av­o­cado and Greek yo­gurt, not to men­tion a pinch of fresh herbs— try tar­ragon, dill, or cilantro. It’s an all- around win­ning combo! — Dr. Jonny
