With grilling season upon us and barbecues in full swing, it’s very necessary to have a go-to potato salad recipe on hand, don’t you think?
I spent years avoiding potato salads because they’re usually filled with inflammatory ingredients like vegetable oils, unhealthy mayo, sugar, and who knows what else. Potato salads remind me of mystery meats. What’s really in them? Does anyone even know?!
Even in my “unhealthy” eating days, I always strayed away from potato salads. Even when I used to eat dairy, soy, vegetable oils, and sugar on the reg, potato salads always seemed questionable to me. I’ve had delicious potato salads, and I’ve had awful ones. You never know what you’re gonna get.
If, like me, you’ve had reservations about potato salads, FEAR NO MORE. This Paleo / Vegan Fingerling Potato Salad will change the game. If all potato salads were like this, they’d have a very different reputation.
Now you can join in on this American favorite without compromising your health! I love healthier takes on old classics, and I honestly think they often taste better, too. With this recipe, you definitely won’t miss your old unhealthy potato salad.
For that unique potato salad flavor, traditional mayo and vinegar are replaced with Primal Kitchen Mayo and apple cider vinegar, which are two of my favorite foods. If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen mayo yet, you will become obsessed with it, too. I used to think I didn’t like mayo in general, but Primal Kitchen completely changed my mind. If you follow me on social media, you probably remember when I used to put Primal Kitchen Mayo on literally every meal… I couldn’t get enough. (You can use my code “WELLNESS” for 10% off any Primal Kitchen products!) If you are vegan, then check out their egg-free mayo!
The mayo, apple cider vinegar, and mustard all work together to create that creamy, classic potato salad flavor that’s become so well-loved. When it comes to mustard, make sure you’re checking your ingredients, because many contain sugar. Look for something that just has vinegar, mustard seed, and maybe salt. Some brands I like are Primal Kitchen, 365 by Whole Foods, and Eden Foods.
This recipe is super simple, but the flavor packs a big punch! All you have to do is boil the potatoes, refrigerate them, make the creamy dressing, and mix it all together! Potato salad is also great because it stores so easily since it’s meant to be served cold anyways!
This Fingerling Potato Salad will become your family staple, too, once you give it a shot! No one would ever guess it’s paleo and vegan, and it’s great because everyone will love it, and everyone can eat it, no matter what their dietary restrictions are. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and nut-free!
