This Asian-influenced salad gets some of its flavor from tamari, a brown sauce that's made from soybeans. Use it to flavor other dipping or basting sauces, too. You only need half an hour and eight ingredients to make this salad. As well as the tamari, it features lump crabmeat, julienned carrots, green mangoes, red onions, and snow peas, as well as a little bit of sesame oil and rice-wine vinegar. It's definitely a celebration of color and texture. If you can't find green mangoes at your local grocery store, try checking at an Asian or Indian specialty market, or look online if you can plan ahead.
