A lobster salad is an excellent choice for a luncheon or hot weather dinner. The salad can be served over lettuce leaves or used to fill sandwich buns.
If you are lucky enough to have a few freshly steamed lobsters, this is an excellent way to enjoy them. We enjoy lobster with butter, but a lobster salad is my favorite.
Arrange this lobster salad on lettuce leaves or mixed greens with avocado wedges or fresh sliced tomatoes around the edge of the plate. Or, use the lobster salad mixture to fill toasted hot dog rolls.

Place a rack in a large pot. Add about 2 inches of salted water in the pot and bring the water to a boil over high heat.
Add the lobsters, cover the pot, and begin timing.
About halfway through the cooking time, lift the cover and shift the lobsters around with tongs.
Replace the cover and continue cooking.
