Check through the crab meat and discard any pieces of shell. Squeeze out any liquid then combine the crab meat, mayonnaise, lime juice and chives.  Mix well, taste and season.  Set aside while you prepare the salad and salsa.

Mix all the salad ingredients together, including the lime juice and olive oil, then taste and season. In a separate bowl mix all the ingredients for the salsa, taste and season.

To assemble Warm the tortillas or taco shells as per packet instructions.  Then fill each with a spoonful of salad, add some of the crab mixture and top with the salsa.  Garnish with some coriander and mint leaves and serve with a lime wedge on the side.  Alternatively place the various elements in bowls in the middle of the table and let everyone help themselves.
