16 (3/4-ounce) slices sourdough bread

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3/4 teaspoon lemon zest

3 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided

12 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and picked

2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

32 (1/4-inch-thick) Roma tomato slices

4 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated (about 1 cup)

Step 1

Preheat broiler. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet, and broil 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly golden and toasted.

Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon zest, 3 tablespoons dill, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small mixing bowl. Combine crab, onion, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture to bowl; stir to combine.

Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture evenly over toasts. Divide crab mixture evenly over toasts; top evenly with tomato slices and cheese. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle with black pepper and remaining 1/2 tablespoon dill. Serve immediately.
