-sweet bell pepper rings;
-crabmeat, legs included;
-and the dressing)

I cannot think of anything that is more typical of a fine lunch in
Seattle than a Crab Louis. This is a grand salad, and a properly prepared
one is laden with fresh Dungeness crabmeat. You can use other kinds of
crabmeat, of course, but I want to stick to my Dungeness.

Mix all of the above together and chill.

Arrange a whole leaf of lettuce on each plate. Use a leaf that is large
enough to form a sort of bowl. Put a handful of shredded lettuce in each
bowl and then a good serving of crabmeat. Top with sliced eggs, olives, and
pepper rings. Pass the Louis dressing and allow your guests to add a bit to
their salads.
