seafood salad with crab and lobster

a recipe by
John Goins

If you’re looking for a light dish to serve at a party, this is a good one. This would also be great at a summer garden party. The recipe as written calls for Rosemary and Thyme, but you can substitute other herbs that you like better. Parsley and dill would also be nice in this dish. Try pairing this dish with a lovely rosé. Either a bolder or a lighter rosé would be great here. A light Provencal rosé A medium rosé of Merlot A heavy resé of Grenache
