When I was growing up, I always enjoyed seeing how creative my abuela and my mom used to get in the kitchen to celebrate Lent. We’d have bacalao con arroz blanco, ensalada de pulpo, and sopa de marisco. Scroll down for a crab coleslaw salad & spicy Clamato® Tomato Cocktail dressing.

They went all out with their seafood dishes! These days, Franklyn and I try to have just as much fun in the kitchen for Lent. I love to see how Franklyn adds a little Dominican flavor to our seafood dishes and how he always adds a fresh splash of Clamato Tomato Cocktail that we buy at Walmart to just about everything. This year (last year we made a shrimp ceviche lasagna) for Lent, we decided to make a crab coleslaw salad with spicy Clamato dressing.

It always fascinated me how my abuela’s cooking could bring our family together to sit down and eat in harmony. It was, and still is, how I defined convivir: to live among others in harmony. In my opinion, food has a natural unspoken way of bringing people from all walks of life together.

When our family got together to eat and celebrate Lent, they took Lent seriously and would not allow us to listen to anything but baladas vieja. They scolded us if we got too loud or had too much fun. Now, as a mom, I’m not too strict, but I do try and incorporate the same values (and ballads that I now enjoy) by gathering my own family to celebrate Lent and cooking dishes like this fresh and flavorful crab coleslaw salad with spicy Clamato dressing.
