Potato and Crabmeat Salad

  • Yield 5 servings

Turn potato salad from ho-hum to fabulous by adding delectable crabmeat.


1 1/2 pounds baby new potatoes, cut in half or into 1-inch pieces (about 6 cups)
1/2 cup lite canola mayonnaise
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 -- scallions, white part minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
8 ounces cooked crabmeat


  1. Set a steamer basket in a large pot with a lid. Add enough water to come just below the basket and bring to a boil. Place the potatoes in the basket, cover pot, and reduce heat to a simmer. Steam the potatoes until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, scallions, tarragon, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the cooled potatoes, tomatoes, and crabmeat and stir gently to combine. Chill well before serving. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
