Dungeness Crab and Apple Salad

For the Addison family, holiday vacations are spent camping with friends in the desert near the Mexican border. This dish, which can easily be made in advance, has graced our (plastic folding) table on many camping adventures and always leaves nearby campers a wee bit jealous. Don’t get me wrong: Hot dogs are classically and traditionally delicious. But hot Elephant Garlic Soup with the zesty and fresh Dungeness Crab and Apple Salad on a cold evening sitting around a campfire? Now that is hard to pass up.
