Crab and Potato Salad

Julie Madawi


Saw this recipe at Food Network and decided to tinker with it to make it my own. It's kind of like a crab boil in a salad, so tasty! Makes me think of summertime at the beach.

You can boil your own crab, buy it cooked, or even use "krab" if you like! Fresh corn is going to be available here in Florida soon, wouldn't some fresh cooked corn right off the cob be divine in this salad?

1 c
crab meat (see my recipe for crab boil seasoning if you plan on cooking your own)
2 lb
small potatoes, new red
1/2 c
corn kernels
1/4 c
salad macaroni, cooked
1 c
mayonnaise, prefer hellman's or best foods, more or less to your liking
1/4 c
minced celery
2 Tbsp
minced onion
1 tsp
cajun seasoning, i use tony chacherre's
1 Tbsp
grated frozen lemon, see my recipe
1/2 tsp
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp
fresh parsley, minced

Directions Step-By-Step

Boil whole red potatoes in salted water until tender, 12-15 minutes, cool and slice large ones into quarters, small in half. Boil the eggs, cool and dice. If using fresh corn, steam or boil until crisp tender, cool and cut off the cob. Add the potatoes, macaroni, and corn to a large bowl and mix together.
In a small bowl, combine mayo, eggs, celery, onions, lemon and spices. Add to potato mixture and blend together. Taste to check the seasoning (my favorite part!). Garnish with fresh minced parsley.
Salad can be served warm or chilled, refrigerate to keep fresh.
