Description

John's Celebrated Lobster SaladThis is a crowd-pleaser, but it relies on absolutely the best ingredients.

Ingredients

1TMayonnaise (Hellman's)
1tOnion (minced)
1tCelery leaf (chopped)
1eaLobster (cooked, 1.25#-1.5#)
1pnCoarse Unrefined Sea Salt

Instructions

Mix the dressing ingredients and chill.

Open the Lobster and reserve the claw meat. Cut the body into thick medallions and cut the rest finer.

Stir the dressing into the lobster a little at a time until you have just enough to flavor it but not more than that.

Chill and serve garnished with the claw meat. 

Notes

The key to making this the best lobster salad ever is to use the best fresh lobster, which means cooked today and fresh from real seawater if at all possible. Leftover lobster loses its sparkle.

I use very coarse sea salt that does not dissolve into the dressing. This makes for great salty seaside flavor bursts.

Consider putting this in a cocktail glass with some endive or radicchio leaf.

Yummy

I love the idea of putting it in a cocktail glass and I think it would look smashing with a radicchio leaf!
