This is a beautiful, unique salad that combines a variety of flavors that you initially may think shouldn't go together—but once you have a bite, you'll soon be convinced, and you'll find yourself making this salad over and over. The simple dressing features fish sauce, rice-wine vinegar, lime juice, garlic, sugar for a little sweetness, and red pepper flakes for a little heat. Simply toss in the arugula, shredded apples, crabmeat, and tomatoes, sprinkle with peanuts, and your gorgeous salad is ready to go. You can also julienne the apple with a mandoline or slice it into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks to mix up the presentation.
