The kick off to Summer has begun, and you know what that means? BBQ’s, beach and picnic time, and of course getting together more with people in the great outdoors. Yippy! 

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.

Yummy 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? CRAB POTATO SALAD

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:)

crab potato salad




Bowl 1: While your potatoes are cooking, mix your mayo, sour cream, old bay seasoning, celery salt, white pepper, together and set aside.


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.
