Mother's Day Potato Salad

What you need: 

6 small baking potatoes, evenly cubed
1 cup vegan mayo
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (optional)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
1 big spoonful of relish (I use dill, not sweet)
1 small clove of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon of powdered vegetable broth mix

What you do: 

Cube the potatoes with the skin on (optional, peel if you prefer), then boil them in a large pot of salted water until tender when poked with a fork.
While the potatoes are cooking, mix together the rest of the ingredients. I drain the potatoes and mix them with the dressing while the potatoes are still hot, but you can cool them if you prefer. I prefer the potatoes hot, because they absorb more of the dressing. Once you've mixed the potatoes and dressing, refrigerate until the potato salad is nice and chilled.
Sidenotes: I don't know if Old Bay seasoning is available everywhere, but it's just a blend of celery salt, bay leaves, mustard, red pepper, ginger, allspice, paprika, and cinnamon. It's mostly used for poultry and seafood but it's vegan and I use it on everything!
P.S. Careful with the turmeric, if you choose to include it, because it can stain your clothes or countertops yellow.

This really satisfies my potato salad cravings!  I use red potatoes, sweet relish, add seasonings to taste and skip the broth mix, don't even miss it!  I'll eat it warm because I'm too inpatient to wait for it to chill!  Yum!


I never really liked potato salad but I was excited to try this for a family event.  I used red potatoes.  It was great  :)>>> changed my feelings about potato salad all together.  And everyone loved it as much as I did.


This was delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe.


This is really good! I add chopped celery and onion too, for crunch. Yummm........


I've never been a big fan of potato salad, but this recipe, served hot or cold, is so delicious! Makes my mouth water... ::drools::

(I subbed Old Bay Seasoning with All Seasons Salt by Simply Organic, purchased at Whole Foods)
