  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 6 Tbsp lime juice

  • Prepare the dressing by whisking together the ginger, sugar, lime juice, garlic and water. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Tightly layer together in a mold one fourth of each of the microgreens, tomatoes, cucumbers, mango, onions, avocado and crab. Use a hollowed out aluminum can if you don't have a mold.

  • Drizzle the crab stacks with the dressing and serve.
