How To Make Vegan Potato Salad

You’ll love how simple this easy side dish is to throw together

Stop One – Chop and boil the potatoes

  • Chop the potatoes into bitesized pieces (we keep the peels on, but you can remove if you prefer) and boil in salted water until fork tender. Always start potato es off in cold water and bring them to the boil on the hob. The ensures they cook evenly and end up tender. Drain and allow to cool down.

Step Two – Make the salad dressing

  • Make up the dressing – whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard and season with salt and black pepper.

Step Three – Assemble the vegan potato salad

  • Add the potatoes to a large bowl – and pour over some of the dressing – toss well to coat everything – then add in the herbs (save some for garnish) add in the radishes and celery and toss everything together with the remainder of the salad dressing.

Step Four – Serve your salad

  • Tip the potatoes onto a serving platter – and scatter over the remaining herbs as garnish.

Recipe Tips and Ingredient Add-ins

I think the absolute best and tastiest potato salad is made with local new potatoes – the fresher the better.

I cut them into bitesized chunks so that they literally take just 5-6 minutes to boil and keep the skins on for added flavour and colour. 

I like to add in some more colour and flavour by adding sliced radishes and lots of herbs. And I prefer to lighten up the dressing and steer clear of creamy versions just because it’s healthier and tastes much fresher and lighter. 

Ingredient Add Ins

This potato salad is great for adding in extra bits you fancy. Try finely hopped red onion, corn, cooked beans for extra fiber and any extra fresh herbs you like And if you prefer a creamy dressing use vegan mayonnaise.

How to make non-creamy potato salad dressing

It’s super simple – just take a good swig of a nice fruity olive oil, a splash of red wine vinegar, couple of teaspoons of Dijon mustard and season well with sea salt flakes and black pepper – whisk really well. 

Do The Potatoes For Potato Salad Have To Be Cool Before Adding The Dressing?

When dressing potato salad with a vinaigrette dressing you don’t need to let the potatoes cool completely – I wait until they’re cool enough to handle and then toss through the other ingredients and add the dressing – then scatter over a platter ready to serve. 

If you’re using a more traditional mayonnaise or cream based dressing then let them cool completely before dressing. 

How long can I keep potato salad in the fridge?

For the salad to be fresh and tasty I recommend keeping for no longer than 1-2 days.
