Classic Creamy Potato Salad

Thanks to a major sale at the grocery store, I have an abundance of potatoes right now. So, it's starch, starch, starch as far as the belly can stretch. Woo hoo! Here's a simple potato salad I threw together last night - nice and creamy, but not too heavy in your tummy.

8 small to medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise, or more to taste
3 stalks celery, diced
5 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup dill relish
3 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon paprika, plus more for garnish
2 teaspoons all-purpose seasoning, or any combo of your favorites
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Boil potatoes in a large pot, with enough water to cover them by about two inches over.
  • Once potatoes are fork-tender, drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Place potatoes either back into the pot, or into a large bowl and add remaining ingredients. Stir gently until potatoes are coated with the good stuff.
  • Sprinkle with a little extra paprika on top when you serve.
  • Makes about 8 servings.
  • Enjoy!

Looks amazing! I think it might be time to see if my grocery store has a sale on potatoes... I wouldn't mind eating them morning noon and night. :)

That looks delicious! I have a ton of potatoes at home as well, so I might make it. Only thing is we don't get vegan mayonnaise in South Africa so may have to make some of that too!

Thanks for posting this!
