How do you make Vegan Potato Salad? 

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 flavor and sauce goodness. The big game-changer in this Vegan Potato Salad recipe are the capers. They just add so much character and tang to this already amazing and simple dish.

Here is the step-by-step:

  1. Boil your potatoes until soft, strained, cool, and then half them
  2. Now into a bowl, add all your other ingredients
  3. Stir well until combined
  4. Enjoy!

I am not kidding! This recipe requires 11 vegan-friendly ingredients, and only about 45 minutes to make from start to finish! What more could you ask for?

The best things about potatoes 

Potatoes are really underrated in terms of health benefits. Here are some of the health benefits you can rack in when you consume these delicious carby delights. 

  • They’re great for bone health because of the iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, and zinc in them
  • The potato’s fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health
  • Potatoes contain folate which plays a role in helping lower your risk of cancer 
  • The fiber in potatoes helps aid in good digestion

2 large handful fresh dill

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. dill paste or fresh dill

2 heaped tbsp. vegan mayo

1 tbsp. dijon mustard

1 tbsp. honey or maple syrup

1 tsp french’s mustard

3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/2 a medium-sized white onion, finely chopped

1 small shallot, finely chopped

2 tbsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper

If you do not have access to baby potatoes, just use Yukon Golds.  Peeled and quartered (or into bite size pieces).

If you prefer regular mayo, that is fine.

If you do not like lemon, use white vinegar.

You can also add fresh herbs like parsley, oregano and cilantro!

Maria, your old potato salad recipe included capers. I made it a few times and people raves about it. The link is broken on Pinterest and I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Could you reshare the ingredients list?
