Perfect Summertime Potato Salad

What you need: 

5-6 large russet potatoes, peeled or unpeeled & diced into large pieces (sub an equal amount of red potatoes if you prefer)
1/4 medium-large red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed (feel free to substitute lightly steamed fresh peas)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped baby carrots (of course, you can use regular carrots)
3/4-1 cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
2 Tablespoons minced fresh dill
celery salt, to taste
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

What you do: 

First, place the diced potatoes, along with a generous sprinkle of sea salt, in a pot. Add water to cover the potatoes, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until tender, around 15 minutes. Once potatoes are done cooking, remove from heat. Rinse the potatoes with cool water to prevent them from getting overcooked. When the potatoes have cooled, mix them with the rest of the ingredients. Chill the potato salad in the refrigerator to let all of the flavors combine for 1 hour, or until serving time.

OK, this is my own recipe, but I love it!  I made this as part of my 4th of July festivities yesterday (along with grilled veggie dogs, corn on the cob, baked beans, and redwhite&blue cupcakes).  I hadn't made this for quite some time, but now that it's summer, I'm sure I'll be making it more often.  Thanks to everyone who's made my recipe.  I appreciate all of your comments.


I just made this recipe and it is delicious, thanks so much! Quick and easy  :)


Wow, this was very good indeed.
I only made 2 changes. Since the veganaise I had already has mustard in it, I did not add any more mustard.
For fun, I tossed in a few tablespoons of Bacos.
Man, this was YUMMY!


this is really, really good!  i've always disliked mayonaise, so i only put in 1/2 of the called-for nayonaise and added a healthier squirt of mustard, and spicy brown at that.  despite my nayo-phobia, i loved this!  my bf was even happier, exclaiming, "dude, this potato salad is the bomb!!"  :)  easy and yummy - thanks for sharing!
