  • 24 (1/2-inch slices) French Bread (from 1 loaf)
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1 lb. fresh jumbo lump crabmeat, picked free of shells
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped capers
  • 2 Tbsp. Champagne vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Garnish: micro arugula


1.) Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil. Lay bread slices evenly on prepared pans. Drizzle oil over bread, and sprinkle evenly with 1/2 tsp. salt. Bake until lightly golden and crispy, about 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

2.) In a large bowl, gently combine crabmeat, celery, mayonnaise, mustard, capers, vinegar, parsley, zest, remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, and pepper. Cover, and refrigerate up to 2 days. Spoon 1 Tbsp. crab mixture on each crostini. Top with micro arugula, if desired.
