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!
What is the RPL Recipe Club?
Each month, I’ll choose one Rainbow Plant Life recipe that anyone in the RPL community can choose to make.
You can make it just for fun OR you can enter to win an amazing prize each month! This month’s prize is listed below.

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!
July 2023 Prize:
This month, we’re delighted to give away a Caraway Food Storage Set!
A high-quality set of glass storage containers is essential for every home cook. The large containers are excellent for storing meal preps for the week; the medium-sized ones are perfectly suited for packing lunches like Broccoli Salad or Quinoa Salad; and the small containers can hold your salad dressings like Vegan Ranch or Hummus!
These non-toxic ceramic coated glass containers were designed with Air Release Technology, which keeps food fresh and odors out. Also they’re just very beautiful and will make you feel like you’re eating fancy food.
A note for international readers: Due to the exorbitant cost of international shipping, we can only ship the above prize within the 48 contiguous United States. However, you can still enter to win if you live elsewhere. If your entry is selected as the winner, we’ll send you a payment of $150 in lieu of the prize. Payment will be sent via PayPal.
