    Coastal Living

    List of Ingredients

    • 16 (3/4-ounce) slices sourdough bread
    • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 3/4 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 3-1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill, divided
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 12 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and picked
    • 2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
    • 32 (1/4-inch-thick) Roma tomato slices
    • 4 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated (about 1 cup)
    • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


    1. Preheat broiler. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet, and broil 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly golden and toasted.

    2. Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon zest, 3 tablespoons dill, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small mixing bowl. Combine crab, onion, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture to bowl; stir to combine.

    3. Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture evenly over toasts. Divide crab mixture evenly over toasts; top evenly with tomato slices and cheese. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle with black pepper and remaining 1/2 tablespoon dill. Serve immediately.

      Makes 8 servings.
