Crab Louie Salad Sliders. The Crab Louie Salad has been around for over 100 years and first became popular on the West Coast of the United States (or was it King Louie himself who first dined on this salad…the world may never know). The salad consists of crisp lettuce, sliced tomato, hard boiled eggs, ripe olives, sometimes asparagus….and of course gorgeous crab meat which is tossed in Crab Louie Dressing.
Look at these for just a moment. They are red currants and tonight they are recipe inspiration. When we were growing up, one of mom’s signature party appetizers was Cocktail Franks in Red Currant Chili Sauce. We loved them. I hadn’t thought about them in quite some time until I spotted these little beauties at the market. There was no way I was leaving without them. And so we shall have Red Currant Chili Glazed Salmon over Israeli Couscous with Spinach.
