|2 tbl||olive oil|

|¼ tsp||freshly ground black pepper|
|¼ tsp||dry mustard|
|¼ tsp||ground thyme|
|1 tbl||dry basil|
|1 tbl||fresh minced parsley|
|1||lime, juice only|
|1 lb||lump white crab meat (the fresh stuff, not that pasteurized, canned crap)|
Bayley's Restaurant in southern Mobile invented a dish they called "West Indies Salad". Theirs uses only vinegar, oil, salt & pepper, and ice water. This is my version with a little more spice.
Combine all ingredients except the crab meat in a stainless steel, plastic, or porcelain bowl. Stir together then add the crab meat. Toss gently with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours...or overnight. Serve well chilled with crackers.
