Arrange lettuce on a large, round serving plate and place 3 (6-oz.) pkgs. frozen, cooked crabmeat, defrosted (or 3 cups fresh or canned crabmeat) in center.
Form a ring of chopped, hard-cooked eggs (using 4) around crabmeat, then arrange 4 tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges, on lettuce.
Serve with Louis dressing made by combining 1 cup mayonnaise with 1/2 cup each heavy cream, whipped, and catsup and 1/4 cup each chopped green pepper and chopped scallions.
A magnificent salad from the West Coast to feature Pacific crabmeat.
However, debate rages as to the exact recipe.
Some versions do not permit tomatoes, some sprinkle the salad with chives, and some spike the Louis dressing with 2 tablepoons chili sauce and 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire to make a hotter sea food sauce.
