Mayo-Free Potato Salad

Rated as 4.32 out of 5 Stars

"I created this recipe as I do not use mayo in anything! It has great flavor. The coloring on this is not 'white' because of the no mayo. The Dijon and paprika give it a rustic look. Experiment with flavored oil, olives, and vinegars. I used Persian lime olive oil. This recipe can be modified easily, including adding crispy bacon to it. Enjoy!"

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Chill the potatoes in cold water, and chop into cubes when cool enough to handle.
  2. Transfer the potatoes into a large salad bowl, and toss lightly with dill pickles, green onions, celery, cilantro, dill pickle juice, dried dill, 1 teaspoon paprika, salt, and pepper. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard, and pour the dressing over the potato mixture. Toss again to coat all ingredients with dressing. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon paprika.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If you'd like a 'saucier' potato salad, just make more dressing and add until you get the consistency you want.
  • You can substitute champagne vinegar for red wine vinegar.

Great stuff! I used parsley instead of cilantro, about 1/8 cup red onion instead of 2 green onions, added about 1/2 tsp of celery salt, and doubled the pickle & celery.. Yum!
