Ingredient Notes

Potato Salad

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: You might already have this one hand. If not, you can find it at Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, or your favorite local grocery store.
  • Yellow Mustard: Use your favorite or whatever you have on hand.
  • Celery stalks: Diced.
  • Red Onion: Diced.

Step by Step

  1. Peel and Cut the Potatoes. Cut potatoes into quarters and place them in a large stockpot. Fill the pot with cold water until it is 1 inch over the top of the potatoes.
  2. Cook the Potatoes. Set the pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add 1 tablespoon salt and cook the potatoes for 13-15 minutes, until fork-tender.
  3. Combine. Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Gently mix in the tangy herb cream sauce until it coats the potatoes well. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with bacon crumbles, fresh chives, and dill, and finish with paprika.
  4. Chill the Potato Salad. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours! Give the herb cream + potatoes a good stir, and serve at your backyard bbq!

Tangy Herb Cream Sauce

  1. In a medium bowl mix the mayonnaise, pickle relish, mustard, apple cider vinegar, celery, red onion, and seasoning/fresh herbs (except paprika, this goes over the top of the salad once done). Stir until combined.

FAQs

No Egg Potato Salad: FAQs

Can I make this recipe dairy-free?

Yes! Simply replace the dairy ingredients (Sour Cream) with non-dairy alternatives in the same quantities. Be sure to buy a vegan mayo or make my 60-second mayo! Keep in mind that this recipe is not vegan due to the added bacon. Feel free to leave out the bacon if you need to make it vegan.

How do you keep potatoes from falling apart in potato salad?

The key to preventing your potatoes from falling apart is to remove them from cooking as soon as they are tender. This way, they are tender, but still hold their shape. If you overcook, there is a chance your potatoes will be too soft and will fall apart.

How long does potato salad last without eggs?

If stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, this potato salad will keep fresh for up to 5 days.

Why does my homemade potato salad get watery?

Potatoes hold a lot of water when they cook, so it’s wise to let them cool for a bit after draining them so they express any water they are holding in. Otherwise, if your salad gets a bit watery, give it a quick stir before serving. It’ll still taste great!
