I LOVE potato salad.
The only problem is, I don't really like mayonnaise.
Truth be told...
...I actually hate the stuff.
I mean, I will eat the stuff on occasion - if I simply can't get around it - but never do I crave it. Usually I avoid it. Call it blasphemy if you must, but I prefer my potato salad sans the bottled white goo. Instead, I like my potato salad with a kick of mustard, and in today's case, balanced out by the perfect sweetness of nature's sticky gift: honey.
Honey Dijon Potato Salad
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 large carrots, shredded
2 large Russet potatoes, diced and boiled until tender
1/2 red onion, diced
1 apple, diced
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1T (heaping) Dijon mustard
1T (heaping) honey
1/2T apple cider vinegar
- Add the celery, carrots, potatoes, onion, and apple to a large salad bowl.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- In a small jar or shallow bowl, shake/whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, EVOO, and apple cider vinegar.
- Pour the dressings over the potato salad.
- Serve warm or cold, depending upon your preference.
Think what you will about mayonnaise - I'll not judge - but give this recipe a shot! I would be willing to bet that you won't be disappointed; AND, if you make this recipe for your upcoming July 4th celebrations, I bet your friends and family will love it too!

How do you like to make (and eat) your potato salad? I feel like potato salad is one of those recipes where everyone has their own "family recipe" and secret ingredient or two. What's yours?!
