Light and Refreshing Lobster Salad Recipe

Lobster is wonderful tasting and versatile. You can serve it whole with butter or you can use it risottos, hot or chilled dishes or even use it to present a trio of seafood, perhaps with crab and shrimp. Another great use for this delicious seafood is to use it in a salad. The following recipe also features cherry tomatoes, arugula, and apple. The main flavor of course comes from the lobster itself but there are more special flavors in this lobster salad recipe, including limejuice, basil, garlic, and balsamic vinegar.

This is a real gourmet dish but it is so simple to prepare. If you have never worked with lobster before, do not worry because it is not so hard. You just need some chopped, cooked lobster meat to work with and the other ingredients are simple to combine. Lobster is not difficult to find. It is not the cheapest source of protein but it is worth it sometimes, if you are cooking for a special occasion like a birthday or a romantic anniversary. Lobster makes a statement!

This is a very healthy recipe as well as a supremely flavorful one. Seafood is naturally low in fat and calories and you can make this amazing sauce without using cream, cheese, or other high fat ingredients. Whether you want to present this delicious lobster salad with lime and basil salsa as an appetizer or for lunch or even an al fresco dinner on a balmy summer evening, you will enjoy every last bite of it. We should all treat ourselves now and then and what better treat than fresh lobster!
