A classic side with the perfect twist.
Vegan Ranch Potato Salad is my new jam. I can’t remember the last time I even had potato salad, or where this idea came from?! But also… where has potato salad been all my life?! It’s so DAMN GOOD.
All I know is, potato salad was made for summer parties and grill-outs. I think the media made me scared of potatoes but I’m back to loving them and have been making them like crazy (hello air-fryer french fries!). Don’t be scared of potatoes, I think they are a perfect grounding food, in the most satisfying way! They’re super high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Magnesium, which are vital for hormone balance and production, too. I think they are so under-rated.
Red potatoes work best in this recipe because they hold up the best and don’t get mushy. We’re also working with crunchy celery and bell pepper, fresh dill, green onions, sunflower seeds and the creamiest (and healthy) homemade vegan ranch that is out of this world. Mmmm!
All you do is cube and steam the potatoes, chop the veggies, blend the easy peasy ranch (I used a Nutribullet) and then combine everything together in one big bowl! It could not be easier, I promise.
I would pair this with BBQ chickpeas or veggie burgers, and a green salad!
Dreamy dairy-free potato salad with a delectable ranch twist!
