Vegan Potato Salad: Easy and Quick Recipe

I like to eat potato salad for Christmas or New Year’s Eve. It tastes best to me according to the recipe from Carsten’s mother. As a vegan, I modified it so that it is purely plant-based. Here comes my vegan potato salad, which you can easily prepare.

Vegan potato salad with mayonnaise

A classic meal at Christmas time is potato salad. But what comes in? Opinions are already divided when it comes to mayo or vinegar and oil as a dressing.

Do you know Silesian potato salad? According to Wikipedia, “Szałot” consists of boiled potato squares, carrots, peas, ham, various sausages, pickled fish, boiled eggs and olive oil or mayonnaise.

Carsten’s mother was born in Opole (Opole), in south-western Poland. Your family recipe has already been modified from the original, I’ve veganized it.

Thanks to pickles and apples, the potato salad tastes sweet, sour and fresh. In the vegan version, the mayo is purely plant-based, there are no eggs and you can add vegan meat sausage. I like to eat soy sausages or sausages with pea protein with potato salad.

Delicious food for Christmas or New Years Eve

Incidentally, the hearty recipe is not just for a festive lunch or dinner in winter. The salad also tastes very good as a side dish in summer for grilling.

In the Advent season, however, I am particularly happy about a simple and quick recipe.

Because you can spend a lot of time with Christmas decorations, buying gifts or baking cookies. Then my beloved Christmas films are still waiting for me and we have another look at the Christmas lights in the Mönchengladbach weavers’ settlement.

Here is the recipe for you.
