  • lime will work in place of lemon
  • use maple syrup in place of honey
  • in place of red onions use sweet onions
  • if you don have any olive oil, use avocado or grapeseed oil
  • to make this vegan or vegetarian, skip the crab meat and maple syrup
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Serve cold. Do not freeze.
