Classic Potato Salad (Vegan Style)

Who isn’t a fan of potatoes?  One of the ultimate comfort foods not only taste great, but are low in calories and packed with Vitamin C and B-6. Potato salad may seem like a summer picnic treat, but when it taste this good – it’s hard to wait!

Classic Potato Salad

And there you have it, a quick and easy recipe for one hearty potato salad!  Enjoy!


  • 1 ½ pounds unpeeled white potatoes
  • 4 strips vegan ‘bacon’
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 3 tablespoons mined white onion
  • ¾ cup vegan mayonnaise (I like Veganaise – available at Whole Foods)
  • 1 tablespoon soy milk or soy creamer
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste.
  1. Cut potatoes into small cubes and add to salted boiling water.  Cook until tender, about 10 minutes.  Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the ‘bacon’ strips and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add the mayo, salt, pepper, soy milk, mustard and vinegar.  Mix until well blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the celery, onion and relish.
  5. Once the potatoes have cooled, toss in the celery mixture and gradually add the dressing until desired creaminess is achieved.  I like a lot of dressing, so I add it all!
  6. Crumble the bacon strips and add to the salad, mixing gently.
