Gluten Free Potato Salad Recipe

Yields: About 6-8 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Chill Time: At least 2 hours

Ingredients:

Potatoes:

  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes

Eggs:

  • 4 large eggs

Dressing:

  • 1 cup gluten-free mayonnaise (check the label!)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dill relish (sweet relish works too)
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Mix-ins:

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 1 tablespoon dried dill)

Instructions

Cook the potatoes:

  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold, salted water.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until fork-tender, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Drain and let cool slightly.

Boil the eggs:

  • In a separate saucepan, place eggs and cover with cold water.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, and turn off the heat. Let sit for 10-12 minutes.
  • Drain and immediately immerse in ice water to stop the cooking process. Peel and chop.

Make the Dressing:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, relish, celery salt, black pepper, and paprika.

Assemble the salad:

  • In a large bowl, combine the cooked potatoes, chopped eggs, celery, red onion, and dill.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and gently toss to coat.

Chill:

  • Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours (preferably longer) for flavors to meld.

Serve:

  • Give the potato salad a final stir before serving. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper if needed.

Tips:

  • Potato variety: Yukon Golds are ideal for potato salad due to their creamy texture and ability to hold their shape. You can also use red potatoes.
  • Make-ahead: You can prepare this potato salad a day in advance. The flavors will deepen even more as it sits.
  • Customization: Feel free to add other favorite ingredients like chopped green onions, bacon crumbles, or shredded cheddar cheese (if you tolerate dairy).
