Bobby Flay's Crab Salad

So we are finally coming near to the end of my Bobby Flay marathon :), and Noah and I are going to maybe try to develop some recipes together, we'll see how it goes ;).  Today's salad was super delicious, it received a 9 from Aaron, Noah and me, and Owen gave it a 7.  Each serving was 428 calories the way I made it, and I found this recipe in Bar Americain cookbook.  Here's what to do:

3/4 c mayonnaise
2 T red wine vinegar
2 T paprika
1/8 t cayenne
salt and pepper
24 oz crab (Krab) meat
1 avocado, diced
1/2 c pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
1 c cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/4 c green onions, chopped
1 bag arugula

1/4 t lemon zest
2 T lemon juice
1 T orange juice
1 T mayonnaise
1 heaping t whole grain garlic mustard
1 t honey
salt and pepper
1/4 c olive oil

Mix the dressing ingredients together, whisking in the olive oil slowly to the rest of the ingredients to emulsify properly.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside, or refrigerate to use later.

Mix the Mayonnaise, vinegar, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper together, then add in the Krab.  This can be made ahead.  When ready to serve, add in the avocado, olives, tomatoes, and green onions. Salt and pepper to taste.  Toss the arugula with the dressing, then top with the crab mixture.
