Easy Lemon Dill Potato Salad

What you need: 

6 or 7 medium potatoes (any variety), peeled and diced to 1” cubes (about 4-5 cups)
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried dill or 1 teaspoon fresh chopped dill
1 tablespoon salt (to salt the water in the pot)
1 tablespoon salt (to salt the water in the pot)
½ cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 large or 3 small celery stalks, chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped chives
¾ teaspoon dried dill or 1 ½ teaspoon fresh chopped dill
¼ teaspoon paprika
½ to 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
½ teaspoon pepper

What you do: 

1. Add potatoes, 1 tablespoon salt, ½ teaspoon dried dill or 1 teaspoon fresh dill, onion powder, and garlic powder to pot and fill pot with cool tap water until just above the surface of the potatoes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and simmer another 5-10 minutes, until fork tender. Do not overcook.
2. While potatoes are cooking, get a bowl big enough for the salad. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and stir to make the dressing.
3. Drain potatoes and add them to the dressing while they’re still warm. Gently toss to coat and leave uncovered for about 30-40 minutes, until they come to room temperature. Then cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.
Source of recipe: This is modified from a Danny Boome recipe. I omitted the peas and veganized it.

This is absolutely the best vegan potato salad out there. My husband, who isn't vegan, and his father who barely knows what vegan means both LOVE it. I tweak the recipe a bit using more dijon and dill and less mayo. Still, it's amazing. Definitely a hit for parties or bbq :)


This is really yummy! I added too much mustard so mine came out more like mustard dill potato salad but otherwise everything was great!  ;)b


That's a typo. I accidentally entered "1 tablespoon salt (to salt the water in the pot)" twice. Only use one tbsp, or less if you want. :)
