This healthy Vegan Tzatziki Potato Salad recipe is full of fresh flavor and has the creamiest texture without any mayo! The Mediterranean flavors pair wonderfully with the buttery soft potatoes and crunchy onions. You won’t miss the mayonnaise at all in this easy side dish.
Potato salad is such a classic summertime cookout side dish. I love olive oil-based potato salads (this is my favorite). But, sometimes I crave a traditional creamy potato salad texture. This recipe is just that but without the mayo! Instead, this Vegan Tzatziki Potato Salad gets its creaminess from a spin on my easy vegan tzatziki sauce which is made from blended cashews and water. It is easy, flavorful and ultra-creamy. Perfect for potato salad! It offers loads of fresh flavor from the spicy garlic and lemony sweet dill. It has a bit of zing from the vinegar, depth of flavor from the extra virgin olive oil and sweetness from a touch of maple syrup. It is the perfect addition to potato salad.
The potatoes are made perfectly tender in either your pressure cooker or on your stovetop. I provide directions for both. Achieving the perfect texture for your potatoes is the key to an unforgettable potato salad.
Along with perfectly cooked potatoes, potato salad has to have subtle crunchiness throughout. For that, I loaded the potato salad up with diced red onions and green onions. They provide super fresh flavor and a satisfying crunchy texture to this side dish.
