Being from the South, potato salad was definitely a comfort food for me, particularly in the summertime, so I was inspired to create the perfect potato salad for my Southern tastes, but with no mayo, eggs, sugar, or salt. Whether it’s for a cookout or a side dish for dinner, this potato salad is sure to please. Believe me when I say this Dill Potato Salad is to live for!
Potato Mayo Ingredients:
1 medium red potato, scrubbed and peeled
2 large Medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, raw and unfiltered
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon hemp seeds

Potato Salad Ingredients:
8 medium red potatoes, scrubbed
2 stalks celery, diced (about 1 cup)
½ tablespoon dried dill weed
2 tablespoons dried chives
1½ cups Potato Mayo
smoked paprika for garnish (optional)

Potato Mayo Dressing
- Fill a small saucepan with water. Roughly chop the potato and add it to a saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Boil for 8-10 minutes until fork-tender. Drain.
- Add the drained potatoes and the remaining dressing ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
- Cut the potatoes into large bite-sized pieces and add them to a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander and rinse under cold water until cool. Allow excess water to drain from the potatoes. Transfer the cooled potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
- Add the chopped celery, dill weed, chives, and Potato Mayo to the mixing bowl. Mix well. Place bowl, uncovered, in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend and the sauce to thicken.
