Summer Tomato & Crab Dip-1st Place Winner in Tomato Art Festival Recipe Contest 2014



Place different color tomatoes in separate bowls and season with salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.  Add lemon juice and a pinch of salt to crab meat and mix. Slice avocado and sprinkle with lime juice. Add balsamic to red tomato.

Using a slotted spoon, place a thick layer of red tomato on bottom of bowl.  Sprinkle 1/2 the goat cheese, a tbsp of bacon on top.  Layer 1/2 the crab and then enough avocado to make a think layer.  With a slotted spoon, add a thick layer of the yellow tomato.  Repeat from goat cheese to avocado.  Finish with another thick layer of red tomato.
