You’ll probably agree that potato salad isn’t really a salad. It’s an entree. Making a wholesome vegan potato salad is easier than you might think.

Potato Salad With Green Herb Dressing [Vegan]


Cooking Time




For vegan potato salad you’ll need:

  • 1 pound small potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) rounds
  • 1 cup cooked (or canned) black beans
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt

For the green herb dressing you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 cup fresh chopped dill
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup


  1. Heat water in a small saucepan, add 1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt and cook potatoes for 6 – 9 minutes until they’re soft enough to slide in a fork easily. Be careful not to overcook them as they’ll be too mushy. When potatoes are ready, drain them and leave to cool down a bit.
  2. Make the dressing by placing all dressing’s ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust the taste and consistency (you can add more water for a more runny sauce).
  3. When the potatoes have cooled, mix them with bell pepper, celery and black beans.
  4.  Pour the dressing over the mixture and combine well. Garnish with some extra fresh parsley. And sprinkling on some vegan parmesan will add even more flavor!
