  • 3 asparagus spears, trimmed and thinly sliced (about ⅓ cup)
  • 8 ounces crabmeat, any shells or cartilage removed
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise

  • 2-5 dashes hot sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 whole-wheat English muffins, split and toasted
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese


  1. Place rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler. Place asparagus (or snow peas) in a medium microwave-safe bowl with 1 teaspoon water. Cover and microwave until tender, about 30 seconds.

  2. Add crab, celery, bell pepper, scallion, lemon juice, mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, hot sauce to taste and pepper; stir to combine.
  3. Place English muffin halves, cut-side up, on a large baking sheet. Spread a generous ¼ cup of the crab salad on each muffin half and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 3 to 6 minutes.
