The Best Potato Salad


5 mins


30 mins



By now we all know I have a thing for potatoes and anything carbs but this recipe takes it all to a whole new level.  The recipe is as simple as can be and the turn out is amazing.

First I was obsessed with my Smashed Potatoes, then My Greek Potatoes and let us not forget the best French Fries!  So are we really surprised that this Potato Salad is my recent addiction? I think not!


This recipe all starts by simply boiling your potatoes to perfection, letting them cool and then halving them so the inside can soak in all the flavour and sauce goodness.


The big game changer in this recipe are the capers.  They just add so much character and tang to this already amazing and simple dish.

I am not kidding! This recipe requires 11 ingredients (including organic food and natural food) and only about 45 minutes to make from start to finish!


You’re going to love this Potato Salad because it is:

  • healthy made with natural foods
  • creamy
  • tangy
  • satisfying
  • vegan + perfect for your plant based diet
  • made with organic foods
  • flavourful
  • quick + easy

We know you will love this recipe (and more vegan recipes on the blog) as much as we did! Do not forget to leave us a comment below if you give this recipe a go, we love hearing your feedback!

Definitely 5 stars! First time I’d made potato salad since becoming vegan and I wasn’t entirely sure how to get all the textures and consistency right. I followed this almost exactly and really had a gorgeous dish that all the non vegans and vegans alike thought was super tasty, regardless of the lack of all the usual ingredients. So, so nice!! Thank you xx

Hello! I am making this for a group of 15 people and I would like to know how many servings this would make in case I need to prepare to double the recipe. Can’t wait to share it!
