Remove from the fridge and season to taste. Place a tian mould on each plate and fill with the crab mix, pressing it down to make sure it holds together, and then carefully remove the mould.

Then make the dressing. Mix the olive oil, vinegar, diced tomatoes, chopped chives, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Drizzle the dressing generously around the tian before serving.
