Dressing Rehearsal a Whole Foods Market Holiday Event


This is a sponsored post for Whole Foods Market Encinitas.

On a recent shopping trip we picked up a few items to make Curried Crab on Crackers. You all know that I work full time while juggling marriage and motherhood so meal planning and recipe creation is something that stumps me every time! Thanks to Whole Foods ~ they have a website FULL of wonderful (and simple) recipe ideas for drinks, appetizers, entrees, and MORE! It's a blessing for working moms like me! That's where I found this SIMPLE appetizer. They even have an option to order your ENTIRE holiday meal!!! I'm definitely using the Whole Foods Best Holiday Ever as my Cheat Sheet for stress free holiday entertaining!

This appetizer may be making an appearance at my next holiday pot luck! Bonus: It is super easy to make and you can make it a day ahead! WIN!



Curried Crab on Crackers:

Creamy, delicately spiced and garnished with a red grape, this is a quick and festive, last-minute appetizer, but it's even better when you make the crab mixture a day ahead. Makes 2 dozen.

Ingredients:
1 (8-ounce) tub crabmeat
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoon mild curry powder (or more to taste)
2 green onions, finely chopped
24 water crackers
12 red grapes, halved


Method:
In a large bowl, fold together crab, mayonnaise, lime juice, curry powder and green onions. Top each cracker with a bit of crab salad, then garnish with a grape half and serve.

Whole Foods is one of our favorite places to shop. During the holiday season it is even more fun! We love the seasonal holiday items and the festive feel of the store during the holidays.  The Whole Foods Market store in Encinitas is hosting an event on December 12th at 6pm.  I'm going! I hope that you'll join me!  The Dressing Rehearsal is a FREE in-store holiday tasting event where there will be an opportunity to see chef demos, sample delicious holiday dishes, and learn about special holiday offerings in the store.  I plan on bringing my hubby and making it into an impromptu date night. They have a nice selection of beers that I'm sure he will enjoy checking out as he is a beer aficionado!
