Lobster Salad Martinis

Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - I love to start a dinner party with some lobster salad martinis while we're mingling; it starts the night off right. The lobster and fresh Ontario Greenhouse vegetables create a really great base formost types of dressings, however, I would avoid the creamy types because you will lose the colour of the fresh Ontario Greenhouse vegetables.

Ingredients:

    Lobster Salad
  • 1 cup (225 g) Ontario Greenhouse diced cucumber
  • 1 cup (225 g) Ontario Greenhouse diced yellow pepper
  • 1 cup (225 g) diced green pepper
  • 1 cup (225 g) Ontario Greenhouse diced red pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup (225 g) Ontario Greenhouse diced tomato
  • 2 cups (450 g) lobster meat

Salad Dressing:

  • 2 cups (500 mL) mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 1- 3 tbsp (15- 45 mL) lobster base to taste
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Accent (flavour enhancer)
  • Dash of Tabasco sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice

Directions:

Mix mayonnaise with Dijon mustard, lobster base, Accent, a dash of Tabasco with salt to taste.

Blend well and toss with vegetables and lobster.

Alternate: Toss vegetables and the lobster meat individually and layer each item in a martini glass to form a layered salad.

Serving Size: Makes 8 - 12 Servings
