The kick off to Summer has begun, and you know what that means? Canada Day is right around the corner as well as BBQ’s and picnics. 

And of course getting together more with people in the great outdoors. Yippy! 

My Crab Potato salad is not only super unique! It is inexpensive and satisfying meal option for any type of gathering. 

Crab Potato Salad

So if you’re looking for a unique summertime potato salad, then why not surprise everyone with this “Amazing Crab Potato Salad”.

Fresh crab works amazing in here, however you can always substitute for imitation crab which we did today and works just as good. 

Crab Potato Salad

This potato salad has just a hint of sweetness from the snow crab and red peppers, however it has a balance of flavors that also come from the old bay seasoning, salt, pepper and lemon juice.

I came up with this recipe a few years back and have been making every June long weekend every since for the family.

You can choose to add imitation crab meat or real crab.


A potato salad to add to the recipe book! 


Did you know that most of the Worlds snow crab comes from our Atlantic Provinces?

Yup it’s true, the best quality snow crab comes from the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and Newfoundland and Labrador

Where Tucker’s family fished and logged for many generations. 

So it is only appropriate that it this potato salad be listed under Canadian cuisine, right? 


Tucker also wants to share his all time favorite song with you all, it’s called the “The Log Driver’s Waltz” which is has been a long time Canadian favourite throughout generations.

And reminds him of home back in maritimes.

We hope you enjoy this potato salad as much as we do:)
