When you can't decide if you'd rather have a Crab Louis or Shrimp Louis salad, then have them both!

The history of the Crab Louis (and Shrimp Louis) is vague. Various restaurants in Seattle, Spokane, Portland and San Francisco have claimed to be the creator of the original Crab Louis. But it's generally thought to have been created in San Francisco in the early 1900s. Countless versions of the Louis salad exist. This version combines both crab and shrimp in this classic salad of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and hard-boiled eggs, all tossed with a homemade Thousand Island dressing.
