Easy Creamy Potato Salad Without Eggs.

This creamy potato salad is so so tasty and really easy to make that will become one of your favorite side dishes. I got this recipe from my aunt many many years ago. Back then, I wasn’t really fond of salads with mayonnaise but when I tried her salad, I absolutely fell in love with it. It’s so simple and has only a few ingredients, yet so delicious and with a perfect balance of flavors. I often make it when we have people round for dinner or for buffets and everyone is asking me for the recipe.

This easy potato salad along with my cauliflower and bacon salad and my creamy fusilli pasta salad are some of my favorite mayo based salads that I like to pair with barbecues, meat and buffets.

Ingredients & How-to

The recipe has only a few ingredients that you usually have in your pantry already and it’s really so easy to make. All you need is potatoes, green onions, carrots, mayonnaise, dill and vinegar. Yeap, you read right, this is a potato salad without eggs. So here it is, let’s get started!

Ingredients for creamy potato salad.

01. I start with preparing the potatoes. I like to cut the potatoes into cubes and then boil them for 10-15 minutes. This way, I don’t have to wait for them to cool down before I cut them and they also cook faster. Win win!!

02. After boiling them, I put them in a bowl and add the vinegar in. The secret here is to leave the potatoes in the vinegar for at least an hour, the longer the better. I usually leave them overnight with the vinegar and then, on the next day, I just put all the ingredients together. But, if you are making the potato salad for the same day, then you could just leave them to soak in the vinegar for an hour.

03. While the potatoes are resting, I prepare the other ingredients. I peel a couple of carrots and then grate them.

04. I clean the green onions and then chop them finely. Same with the dill, I chop it finely after giving it a good wash.

05. When everything is ready, I simply add all the ingredients to a big bowl along with the mayonnaise. I give it a good mix so everything is well incorporated and leave it to rest for 10 minutes before serving so all the flavors will come out nicely.
