Who said traditional potato salad had to be high in fat? This potato salad has all of the flavour and none of the guilt as it is vegan and oil free and is delicious with just about anything. I Particularly like it to serve next to my delicious vegan meatloaf. the creaminess of the salad compliments the the whole dish in a very magical way but I also can’t imagine a picnic, a potluck or any parties without this delicious homestyle potato salad as a side dish.
I highly recommend to forget about the nasty store bought mayonnaise and make the mayo yourself by simply following the recipe here. Its fast, easy to make, packed with protein and its oil free. Who would say no to that? I know you will just love this potato salad recipe as much as we do. This really has been in the family for years. It is the one and only potato salad recipe that we use. it is that good. Enjoy!

- Gently remove the skin of the potatoes and cut them in bite size cubes. Put them in a big bowl, pour over the mayonnaise mixture and gently fold with a spatula to cover the potatoes with the mayonnaise. Taste and add more lemon, salt and pepper according to your taste.
