Crab, Corn, & Tomato Salad with Lemon-Basil Dressing

1 tbsp grated lemon rind
5 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup fresh corn kernels
1/4 cup freshly chopped basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
1 lb lump crab meat
2 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes, 2 varieties

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently.

This dish was heavy on the crab, so a 1/2 - 3/4 lb fresh crab meat would be fine. Also, the flavors in the dish were not very pronounced. After a taste test, I decided to double the olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, and pepper, which made a difference (this is not reflected in the amounts above). Adding more spices or more powerful ingredients, such as avocado, would make it even tastier.
