Stir to blend well. Mixture should be firm enough to hold together. Adjust seasoning as desired. Form crabmeat mixture into 8 patties. Place on waxed paper for about 20 minutes to dry slightly. Pour oil into skillet to a depth of ½-inch and heat to 350 degrees.
Fry crabcakes for about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown on both sides. Do not crowd pan. Fry in several batches, if necessary. Drain on paper towel. Dress greens with vinaigrette and place on for serving plates. Top with crabcakes.
