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

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!

Hey Angel, I am so sorry I didn’t include that. I have updated it now. Servers around 4-5 people! Good luck and please let me know how it goes!

Lizzie Green

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

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much Lizzie! Glad you enjoyed it!
