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.

TO MAKE THE CRAB POTATO SALAD:
Wash and peel your potatoes. Chop them into bite size pieces and place them in a pot covered with water, boil till fork tender. Once cooked, allow them to cool down in cold water.
Now chop your celery, green onions, dill and red peppers into small pieces and set aside.
Once your potatoes are completely cooled down, add them to a large bowl. And then place all your ingredients from bowl 1 into the large bowl and combine till your potatoes are coated.
Then add in your “flaked” imitation crab or "snow crab meat" and your remaining ingredients and mix till combined.
Squeeze in the juice of one lemon, “make sure the seeds don’t fall into the salad”.
Garnish with green onions and chill in the fridge 1 hour before serving.
