Mayo-Free Potato Salad

Mayo-Free Potato Salad

"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.


  • 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.

This is a great recipe as but I did need to make a couple of changes. To reduce the sodium, I only used one pickle and instead of the pickle juice, I used vinegar. My family does not like cila...

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!

I am allergic to soy so this recipe fit the bill for me. No mayo makes it healthier also. I had 12 people for dinner and followed the recipe exactly. It was a big hit and I am enjoying the le...

3.5, used a combination of white nugget and baby red potatoes. Also added more celery and green onion. Miss my mayo potato salad but will try and get hooked on this healthier version!!!

This has the perfect amount of crunch from the celery and pickles and the dressing is yummy. I've never been a huge fan of mayo dressed salads so this hit the spot for me. I did leave out the ci...

Wow, fantastic, a huge thank you, I have been looking for a dairy free potato salad for a long time, as I miss it.. This tastes great, the only thing I changed was the dressing, I added a non da...

Easy to make! Tastes good and great for pool parties and barbecues that are outside.

We've made this several times. We discovered that 1/2 cup of oil made it pretty greasy so we've reduced it to 2 tablespoons and added garlic. Otherwise VERY good.
