Vegan potato salad ingredients and tips

  • Russet, Yukon Gold, or red potatoes: you can use other types of potatoes if you can’t find them, but these are the best choices.
  • Vegan mayo: feel free to use store-bought vegan mayo or make your own version at home following our recipe. It’s delicious, simple, and affordable.
  • Yellow mustard: Dijon mustard is also a good choice.
  • Pickle juice, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice: pickle juice is my favorite choice for this recipe. You’ll find this juice in any pickle jar.
  • Salt: I used iodized salt, but any kind of salt will do.
  • Ground black pepper.
  • Garlic powder.
  • Paprika: omit this ingredient if you don’t like it.
  • Dill pickles: any other type of pickles will do.
  • Green onions: you could also use any other type of onion instead.
  • Celery: feel free to omit this ingredient.
  • Firm tofu: this ingredient is optional, but it’s a good source of plant-based protein and a great alternative to boiled eggs for a vegan version of the classic potato salad. Extra-firm tofu is also a good choice.
  • If you want to add tofu to your vegan potato salad but you don’t really like it, I suggest you try our fried tofu or our baked tofu recipes. They are really good and give the tofu a delicious flavor!
  • If you want to incorporate a different kind of vegan protein, you could serve your vegan potato salad with tempeh, seitan, or even incorporate some chopped tempeh bacon to add some more flavor.
