Crabmeat, potatoes, and cherry tomatoes make a hearty salad that is perfect for potlucks or luncheons.


  • 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 fresh chopped tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 8 ounces cooked crabmeat


  • 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.
  • 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.
