21 Best Vegan Potato Salad Recipes


I am not the hugest potato fan (shh don’t tell my husband) but occasionally when the summer heat is on mid – summer I do love a good vegan potato salad.

Now as a kid, you couldn’t get me to touch potato salad. Potato’s cold? With a bunch of white stuff slathered on them? And who knows what else…err no thanks. Can you tell I was more your plain Jane type of kid when it came to mealtime?

But as an adult I found a few recipes I really liked. Of course those recipes were from my pre-vegan days, so this summer I decided I missed potato salad and wondered how one could ‘veganize’ potato salad and keep it dairy free and egg free.

When I reached out to plant based blogger friends, they were more than happy to share their favorite potato salad creations. And these vegan potato salad options look AMAZING!
