Low Calorie Holiday Salad?

A weekly supermarket circular recommends (for eating light during the holidays) a crab meat and hazelnut salad over fresh salad greens; that it’s “just over 300 calories.” 

There is no recipe given for such a salad, but it is possible to make one with anywhere from 100 calories to 1000+ calories depending on how much crab, hazelnuts and oil are used. All three ingredients contain significant calories, and the nuts and oil are particularly concentrated sources of calories due to their high fat content. Even a small handful of nuts or couple tablespoons of oil, added to just 3 oz of cooked crab meat will bring you over 300 calories. Quantity of ingredients determines caloric content as much as what those ingredients are.
