This California specialty of seafood atop fresh greens is defined, in part, by its creamy Thousand Island dressing. If you wish, you can use either all shrimp or all crab meat, or even substitute another cooked shellfish such as scallops or lobster.
For the Dressing:
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup bottled chili sauce
2 tablespoons sweet green pickle relish
For the Salad:
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded (about 8 cups)
1/4 English (hothouse) cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 pound fresh-cooked lump crab meat, picked over for cartilage and shell fragments
1/2 pound cooked tiny shrimp
1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
2 hard-cooked eggs, cut into quarters
8 red or yellow cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Seafood Louis Recipe at
In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, chili sauce, pickle relish, and salt and pepper to taste. You will have about 1 cup. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

In a large salad bowl or 4 individual salad bowls, combine the lettuce and cucumber and toss to mix. Mound the crab meat and the shrimp in the center of the bowl(s) and arrange the avocado slices, egg quarters and tomatoes around the seafood.

Spoon the dressing over the seafood and garnish with the parsley. Toss at the table and pass the lemon wedges for squeezing over the top.

Have made this four times. It's great. A couple times I did not have everything I needed so I substituted a couple things. I have put imitation crab in before and it was good. I didn't have the chili sauce once but had oriental chili sauce and used it added thousand island dressing and a little mayo to that and WOW That made is spicy I like that best. Try different ways it's great.
