No-Mayonnaise Herbed Potato Salad Recipe Is a Healthy Side Dish Option

Looking for a potato salad recipe for your summer get-togethers? This easy herbed potato salad recipe has no mayonnaise, so it's better for potlucks, cookouts and picnics – plus it's healthier.

You could add any fresh herbs to this mayonnaise-free potato salad recipe. Snip some thyme, oregano, basil or rosemary from your herb garden and toss it in.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 to 7 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 27 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8


  • 2 pounds small red or white potatoes, cut into pieces
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Italian flat leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • black pepper

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the potatoes in salted, boiling water until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Put the hot potatoes into a large bowl.
  2. Put the olive oil, parsley, dill, green onions, lemon juice, mustard and garlic into a blender. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Pulse until herbs are chopped. Add the cooking water and continue to pulse until just blended.
  3. Pour the dressing over the potatoes. Toss to coat. Let the potatoes sit about 10 to 15 minutes to soak up the dressing. 
  4. Fold in the celery, 1/4 cup chopped green onions, 1 tablespoon parsley and 1 tablespoon dill. Season with salt and pepper.

Funny that you highlighted lack of mayo as making it better for potlucks, cookouts and picnics when the potatoes are the actual most risky part from a food safety point of view. The mayo actually makes it safer in reality.
