Wheatless Wednesday: Avocado Crab Louis

Get ready for summer with this delectable, light dinner! Cook's Country's recipe for this classic plate of Americana is specific about its hot sauce of choice (luckily for Californians, Sriracha is a favorite), but other than that it's a pretty laid-back recipe.
