4-Ingredient Tangy Potato Salad

  • You’re seriously going to want this tangy potato salad at your next picnic or cookout or just because.

    This tangy potato salad is only 4 ingredients and you'll love this new way of eating potato salad. Seriously, give it a chance!

    You probably think it’s boring that I’m posting POTATO SALAD but it’s really unlike any other potato salad you’ve had before. When we first made it, Jason and I were shocked that something so simple could taste so good and be that impressive.

    It’s weird to think that Memorial Day is next week. Which also means that we’re halfway through the year already. I feel like I say this every year but this year has definitely gone way faster than last year. I just don’t know what I did the past six months. Well, I know what I did but it just feels like a blur. When does life slow down?

    I read this interactive article a while ago about why life feels faster to older people than younger. Like, how when we were young, we always thought time was so slow but the older you get, the faster you think time passes. There’s like actual truth as to why it happens and it’s freaky how real it is.

    Speaking of Memorial Day, what are you doing? What are you making? I have several ideas for you here and of course, this tangy potato salad should be on your menu ;)

    I’m loving this mayo free tangy potato salad!

  • kings says:

    Hi, is it ok to replace w dijon mustard?

    • Julie says:

      Yes, definitely. You just won’t get the texture from the whole grain part but that’s okay because you’ll still have the flavor! :)

  • Jennifer Vieira says:

    My husband is super picky about potato salad. As a matter of fact, the only kind I have seen him eat in the last 7 years is the same one I always make (and never any other type from anywhere). He was skeptical when I put this on the table, but then proceeded to have 4 servings of it! This was a definite hit with everyone and it was so easy and so light for our hot Houston weather. I will definitely make this again!

    • Julie says:

      I’m so glad you and your husband enjoyed this!!

  • Michael B says:

    Very Good; sort of reminds me of a type I would eat in Frankfurt Germany. Some differences but still good.
