Laura's Crab or Salmon Salad

I can't remember where Laura got this recipe, so I'll just attribute this variation to her. It's beautiful and summery and I better post it before the thermometer gets too low. Oh, and it's delicious with either crab or salmon (although I don't think they'd be delicious together).

What you need:
*2 Grilled or Broiled Salmon Filets
OR *1 Pound of Crab Meat
*1 Big Red Pepper, chopped
*1 Red Onion, chopped
*2 Ears of Grilled Corn (Okay, you can buy the frozen stuff - it's fine.)
*Basil (20 leaves?)
*15 Grape Tomatoes, halved

What you do:
1. Broil or grill the salmon (or open the crab meat package).
2. Break up the broiled or grilled salmon into lump-crab-sized pieces.
3. Chiffonade the basil.
4. Toss basil, salmon/crab, corn, onion, tomatoes, and pepper together with the dressing and serve it up.

What you need for the dressing:
*Juice of 3 Lemons
*Olive Oil
*Salt & Pepper

What you do:
1. Juice the lemons.
2. Emulsify the olive oil into the lemon juice until it gets tasty.
3. Add the salt, pepper, and cumin to taste.
4. Stir in the honey to taste. You can tell when you have enough because it will be delicious.

Enjoy. This is such good food. Yum.
