Potato Salads

Pesto Cauliflower & Potato Salad

Pesto Cauliflower Salad by Terry Hope Romero from Salad Samurai

This classic combination of pesto and potatoes is lightened up with irresistible grilled cauliflower. For a more substantial pesto entrée, replace half or all of the cauliflower with pasta, preferably those tight little twists called gemelli.

Potato and Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Dill

Potato and Corn Salad

When summer is in full swing, it means picnics, family bike rides, BBQs, and lots of dinners on the patio. A popular summer salad which I was never really able to get behind is the traditional potato salad. I just find it too heavy with mayo and much too creamy for my liking. I do, however, love the idea of grilled corn, fresh dill, and tangy mustard in my potato salad, and that’s just what I did to recreate this classic dish. This recipe makes for excellent leftovers, and it’s so easy to whip up to bring along to a lunch or dinner party. It won’t leave anyone feeling weighed down by heavy mayo, and you can proudly say it’s vegan! Recipe and photos contributed by Sophia Zergiotis of Love and Lentils.

Russian Beet and Potato Salad

Salad with beetroot,potatoes,carrots and cucumber ( Beet Salad- Vinegret)

Here’s a simple, classic potato salad made vivid with beets. If you have access to golden beets, by all means, use them. They’re even sweeter than red beets, and keep their vivid color to themselves more than red beets do. Is this salad really Russian? I have no idea; it is really good, though, especially if you like beets! more→

If salads aren’t your thing, try this one, which may change your mind. Potatoes add comfort, and black beans add flavor and protein. The potatoes and beans synergize nicely in this offbeat salad, embellished with artichokes and bell peppers. The liquid from the artichoke hearts provides lots of flavor.
