Healthy Potato Salad

Healthy Potato Salad. A light potato salad recipe filled with vibrant herb and light lemony mustard flavor! Dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan friendly!

Potato salad is a summer classic! It graces the tables of picnics, cookouts, and holiday celebrations everywhere and there are an infinite amount of recipe renditions!

I was inspired to create this recipe because I needed a side dish to go with some ribs. My dad hates mayo so traditional potato salad wasn’t an option, but that just prompted me to see if I could create a lighter take on the popular potluck favorite!

A lot of healthier potato salad recipes use a greek yogurt base which is a wonderful idea, but I wanted to challenge myself one step further and create a recipe friendly for those who eat dairy free or vegan! So enter this recipe: its base is a bit of lemon juice, vinegar, spicy brown mustard (may sub dijon), and a dash of olive oil. Just add that and a few simple spices to some cooked potatoes and voila, a batch of healthy and amazing potato salad!!

Besides potato salad, what’s your go to cookout or pitch in side dish! Let me know in the comments!
