  • 2 lbs (about 900g) potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) finely chopped dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1/4 cup (60ml) chopped chives for garnish


  1. Boil the Potatoes: Place the cubed potatoes in a large pot and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to simmer. Cook the potatoes for about 10-15 minutes or until they are fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and let them cool slightly.
  2. Prepare the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and maple syrup or agave nectar until smooth and well combined. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Assemble the Salad: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked and slightly cooled potatoes with the chopped red onion, celery, dill pickles, and parsley. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture and gently toss until all the ingredients are evenly coated with the dressing.
  4. Chill and Serve: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the potato salad for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together. Before serving, garnish with chopped chives if desired.
