Simple, summery, and satisfying, this healthy, oil-free Vegan Warm Dijon Potato Salad is a real crowd pleaser and perfect for picnics.


  • 2 lbs. baby red skinned potatoes, unpeeled, halved *
  • ½ cup red onion, fine dice
  • 2 Tablespoons dill pickle relish (+/-) *
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, fine chop 

Sauce Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons low-sodium vegetable broth *
  • 1 Tablespoon tahini *
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard (+/-) *
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium tamari *
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon hot sauce *
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried ground mustard powder
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (+/-)


  1. Halve the unpeeled baby red skinned potatoes, then place them into a medium stock pot covered with water, sprinkle with sea salt, and place onto the stove over high heat. Bring to a boil, then immediately lower to a very low boil. You don’t want the potatoes to break up by using a fast rolling boil. Simmer just until fork tender, about 13 to 15 minutes (or longer), then immediately remove, drain, and gently rinse under cold water for approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In the meantime, chop the red onion, until finely diced, then place into a small bowl and cover with warm tap water for 5 minutes, then drain off the water and set aside.
  3. Make the Sauce by placing all the sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisking to combine.
  4. Place the warm baby potatoes, drained red onions, dill pickle relish, and chopped parsley into a large bowl. Pour the sauce over and gently toss until the potatoes are thoroughly coated.  Allow to set for 5 minutes, then gently toss again.
  5. Taste test for flavor. Add more seasoning, if needed. Best if served immediately while the potatoes are warm.
