Crab Louis

My favorite salad in the whole wide world is a Cobb Salad.  Perfection.  But a distant second is a Crab Louis.  I don't know if it it's the crab or the dressing.  And since a Crab Louis has boundless variations (asparagus, cucumbers, avocados, black or green olives), the dressing is pretty much a staple.  So this post is about the dressing. 

This recipe is a staple.  As with the salad, you could certainly vary it in several ways.  But this is a great place to start.

LOUIS DRESSING (makes about 3/4 cup)

1/2 cup mayo
2 Tbsp chili sauce
1 Tbsp grated onion
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
S&P to taste
1 Tbsp cream or half-and-half
hot sauce to taste

Mix all ingredients.  Chill several hours to allow flavors to combine.
