As the weather gets sweaty and outdoor gatherings make a comeback, I’ve got the perfect recipe for July’s RPL recipe club: a very delightful vegan version of a beloved potluck classic.

Potato Salad! But like a really good one. It’s got lots of fresh and bright flavors, a zingy creaminess that won’t weigh you down, and no weird add-ins like raisins!

    July 2023 Recipe: Vegan Potato Salad!

    Celebrate summer with my Vegan Potato Salad! I’ve tried a lot of potato salads over the years, and this version is definitely my favorite. No overcooked potato pieces smushed together with globs of mayo here.

    Instead of the traditional mayonnaise, the dressing for this potato salad is made with creamy tahini and tangy vegan yogurt. It’s incredibly flavorful but won’t weight you down. And there are lots of fun fresh flavors, from dill and chives to capers and lemon.

    The blog post has full written instructions, tips for making the recipe, and ingredient substitutions, so be sure to check it out!

    The Best Vegan Potato Salad

    Just as creamy as classic potato salad but so much better for you and more flavorful! This mayo-free vegan potato salad features perfectly tender potatoes coated in a creamy, tangy dressing that’s packed with fun flavors and takes just 30 minutes. Perfect side dish for BBQs, potlucks, and picnics.

      Also, I never leave online comments but thought what the heck!
      I really enjoyed making this potato salad, it wasn’t complicated yet the flavors were out of this world. Definitely giving it a thumbs up. Five star!!

        Thanks for your feedback, Carole! :)

    2. Candace

      So my husbands love language is potato salad and macaroni salad with ruffles original chips 🙄
      It takes him back to his childhood and home and family.
      I have to say this is his new favorite! That’s saying something! Coming from home made family recipes for all his years. It’s our new go to potato salad.

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Cute! So awesome to hear you two enjoyed the potato salad, Candace :) Thanks for sharing!

    3. Tracey McMahan

      5 stars. Creamy goodness! We really enjoyed it warm, but cool leftovers were yummy, as well. Thanks, Nisha!

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Hi Tracey, Thank you so much for such a fantastic review! Appreciate you taking the time!

    4. Eileen Taft

      Being in the South (USA), serving potato salad at family celebratory dinner (4th of July, mothers day, fathers day, birthdays, Thanksgiving, etc) is an absolute staple. Since becoming vegan 2 years ago, I’ve missed out on all of the potato salad indulgence. NOW, with this delicious vegan potato salad recipe, I can enjoy the family tradition once more. I absolutely love this recipe, and highly recommend it!

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        It warms our hearts to hear that, Eileen! Thank you for sharing :)

    5. Melissa Dahan

      Thanks for all your deeply flavorful, vegan recipes! My boyfriend doesn’t like Dill too much (50% meat eater, 50% willing vegan eater) so think I’d scale it back next time. I thought it was delicious as is, but think it’ll still be enjoyable for others that don’t like dill if you don’t put as much.

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Thank you for trying the recipes, Melissa! We’re glad you enjoyed the potato salad :)

    6. Christina

      5 stars. Super easy to make. Everyone loved it even my friends that aren’t vegan. I made it for a 4th of July party.

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        We appreciate your feedback and support, Christina. Thank you for leaving a review!
