1 small Creole tomato, seeded and chopped
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons Creole Mustard

1/2 teaspoon Creole Seasoning
1/2 cup water
1/4 pound claw crabmeat
1/4 pound cooked peeled small shrimp, coarsely chopped

FOR THE DRESSING, place all ingredients in food processor; cover. Process until smooth. Spoon into small bowl. Cover. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
