Panicking about what to bring to a BBQ as a vegan? Never fear! This super simple vegan potato salad is the perfect dish to bring and share. Creamy, satisfying and delicious vegan potato salad.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s vegan BBQ food. In a lot of people’s minds, vegan food and BBQ don’t go together.
I’m here to show you that they go together perfectly! You can have a delicious, creamy, greasy, satisfying BBQ and it doesn’t have to harm and kill our furry friends.
In the past five years, we’ve seen an explosion of delicious vegan burgers, brats, sausages and hot dogs in the market. BBQ’s are no longer a vegan free zone!
I love BBQ’s so much so that every year I have one for my birthday. I even had a backyard vegan BBQ for our wedding last year.
Speaking of our wedding, this is the recipe that I made that satisfied all 100 of our guests (yes, I was crazy and made all of our wedding food). Most people had no clue it was vegan.
This super simple vegan potato salad is the perfect dish to bring and share at a BBQ. Gone are the days when vegans had nothing to bring that people wouldn’t gawk at and judge (ok, almost gone). This potato salad looks and tastes just like the “real” thing.
A couple of tips for you. My favorite potatoes to use are yukon gold and I usually opt to keep the skins on. You can always peel them off, but a lot of the nutrition is in the skin.
If you’d like to make this a little healthier, you can use a mix of 1/2 of vegan mayo and a 1/2 cup of unsweetened plain vegan yogurt.
Wars have been fought over whether to use sweet or dill relish in potato salad. I’m a dill relish kinda gal, but use whatever your heart desires. If you use sweet relish, also opt for sweet onions.
To jazz this up a little bit, I added firm tofu sprinkled with a little bit of black salt. Black salt is used in indian dishes and has a sulfur smell and taste. This makes the tofu taste like eggs. You can always leave the black salt out and this dish will still taste amazing.
I think those are all the tips I have for you! I hope this summer season brings you a lot of vegan BBQ’s! Share this recipe with your friends and tell me how you liked it in the comments below.
