3 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons of seasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons of sweet chili sauce
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons walnut oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2-3 large vine-ripened tomatoes, skinned, seeded, and chopped (concasse)
1-1/2 cups baby mixed greens

Crab Mixture

Lump cooked dungeness crab meat (about 1 cup)
1 cup artichoke hearts, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
12 pieces of lychees, cut in half
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons deep-fried wonton strips (wonton croutons)
3 tablespoons glazed walnuts (pre-packaged)
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon each balsamic vinegar and Chinese Chinkiang vinegar

1. Combine all dressing ingredients except walnut oil and sesame oil in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in the oils and whisk continuously until emulsified. Place tomato concasse in a small bowl; drizzle with 1 tablespoon salad dressing and set aside. Toss mixed baby greens with remaining salad dressing; drain well and set aside.

2. Combine crab mixture ingredients in a bowl. Stir to mix well. Slightly oil the inside of 4 small (6-ounce) ramekins; divide crab mixture equally among ramekins. Top with tomato concasse. Set aside in refrigerator.

3. To serve, line 4 large plates with sliced cucumber and sliced tomato. Invert ramekins onto center of each plate. Divide tossed mixed greens into 4 equal parts and place on top of crab mixture.
