1 3/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put potatoes into a large pot, cover with salted water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add carrots, and cook until tender, 3–4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate and cool. Add peas to pot of water and cook for 30 seconds; drain and cool.
2
Whisk together ¾ cup mayonnaise, sour cream, oil, lemon juice, half of the garlic, and salt to taste in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate sour cream mixture until cold. In another bowl, whisk together remaining mayonnaise and garlic; gently fold in crabmeat. Cover and refrigerate crab mixture until cold.
3
Gently mix sour cream mixture with eggs and onions along with the reserved potatoes, carrots, and peas. Cover and refrigerate potato salad until cold.
4
Just before serving, mound potato salad onto a round serving platter and form into a large cake. Spread crab mixture evenly over the top and sides. Decorate top of salad with salmon caviar (arranging it in the shape of a crab, if you like) and dill sprigs. Arrange pepper strips around the base of the salad. Serve immediately.
