Recipe Notes

I like to serve it with my Mushroom and Lentil burger ( for the ultimate taste sensation ๐Ÿ™‚

The blender I use for this is aย Tribest Personal Blender. Find it using myย Amazon link:ย

If the potato salad is too dry, you can always add a little bit of water or vegetable stock to the mixture to make it a bit more moist and creamy.

    Hello Anja. I made this recipe and it tasted awesome! Can’t eat it too much with all that nuts though. Ideal for potlucks and family gatherings. Unfortunally i can’t buy your book. Living in the Netherlands, euro’s….I recommand your Youtube canal to other plant based people. Bye Paula.

      Thanks for your feedback Paula. So glad you like the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ Nuts are a healthy whole food and cashews are a great source of iron. You could also use some sunflower seeds to vary it up a bit.

    Wow, this looks really good and I’m really liking the pickle brine idea! I just made homemade refrigerator pickles and have a ton of brine and also dill growing in the garden! I’m going to give this recipe a try : )

    Just made this recipe, it was sooo good. Had two attempts, as in my first attempt I used a Yukon Gold potato in the dressing and when I processed the dressing in my Vitamix, it turned to a gluey jell. I assumed it was the variety of potato, as the Yukon Golds tend to be starchy and gluey when mashed. So for the second attempt, I just fork mashed the potato into the other blended dressing ingredients, and it was fine. More than fine, actually, I just polished off a big serving…YUM!

    Thank you Anja….. at 56 yrs old and experimenting with veganism for the first time due to health concerns, I love your creative and unconventional ways of giving us great recipes with robust flavors that don’t make one feel like they are settling for the “fake” vegan replicas of taste and textures from our former diet

    This is the best vegan potato salad I have ever made! I’m so impressed by the dressing, so creamy and perfect! I have missed this kind of potato salad since I became vegan, and I could not make anything nice with that horrible vegan mayo! I’m so glad I found your channel. Thank you so much for this recipe, Anja!

    Really good, I didn’t follow it exactly but instead used your vegan mayo plus the pickle juice for the dressing. Also added in some raw onion carrot and celery. What a smart idea using pickle juice and pickles, I always make my own bread and butter pickles from the garden and wind up discarding the juice so this made for less waste. It makes a lot of sense, the juice has vinegar, sugar, water and tons of seasonings so it really elevated the flavor. Thanks for all the great ideas (even if I don’t always follow them exactly).

    I made this last night to go with the bean & lentil burgers I made and it was amazing! My dad even loved it as I am introducing him to eating more plant-based foods. I used pickle relish and regular mustard but otherwise followed the ingredients and directions as noted. Thank you so much Anja for posting this recipe and all the others you have on your website!

    Hi Anja, what type of potatoes did you use for this recipe? Planning to make it this weekend for the 4th of July (American Independece Day). Thank you!!

    I doubled the recipe (large group to feed…) and used half pre-soaked cashews and half sunflower seeds. I cut up some olives and sprinkled these on. I needed 0,5-1 cup water to get the right texture.
    Was delicious.
    Gave some to my Dutch “we eat animals and all things sundry to them”. They are clueless itล› vegan.
    Thank you Anya, another success recipe from you.

    Looks great! Can’t wait to try it. Can I ask why you don’t put the Dijon mustard in the dressing? Thanks!

    • Anja October 11, 2017 at 11:50 am - Reply

      I just find the flavor stays a bit stronger when not mixed in the dressing… but you can if you like.
