Salt and Vinegar Potato Salad-Main

Tis the season for sides!  Last week I shared with you my favorite homemade baked bean recipe and today I’m sharing my new favorite potato salad recipe!  I’ve always loved potato salad but have usually done a very traditional one with mustard, hard-boiled eggs and a few vegetables.  

This salt and vinegar potato salad is definitely not your traditional favorite salad but will soon be your favorite!  I really love salt and vinegar potato chips because they are so tangy and have such a great flavor, so I figured it only made sense to make a salt and vinegar potato salad!  Potatoes can be kind of bland by themselves so the vinegar really wakes them up and gives this potato salad such an amazing taste that you are sure to love :)


Salt and Vinegar Potato Salad

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8
  • Category: Side, Gluten Free, Vegan


  • 3 large russet potatoes, diced (about 9 cups when diced)
  • 2-3 cups distilled white vinegar*
  • 1 cup vegan mayo, or regular mayo (I love using Just Mayo)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 radishes, sliced
  • 2/3 cup thinly sliced red onion


  1. Place the diced potatoes in a large pot and pour vinegar in. Cover the rest of the potatoes with water, about 5 -6 cups. Bring potatoes to a boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer potatoes until fork tender, about 25 minutes. Drain potatoes and let cool for about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the remaining potato salad ingredients and make sure everything is evenly mixed together. Potato salad can be served immediately or chilled until ready to serve.


*Use 2 cups for a more mild vinegar taste and 3 cups for a more intense taste.

    Oh my goodness, yesss!! Vinegar is a perfect partner to potatoes and I know this is mouthwateringly delicious, Izzy! I think I could eat my weight in potato salad during summer.. It’s a weakness, I’m certain! This is so delicious and I can’t wait to whip it up! xo

    My husband is obsessed with salt and vinegar chips and potato salad. He would probably die if I showed him this dish, Izzy! 😉 What a creative idea!

    Hi Izzy! This really caught my attention, as I’ve been a bit addicted to salt and vinegar chips lately! (really popular here in the UK!)
    I bet it works great to add a bit of vinegar to potato salad to jazz it up a bit! This would be wonderfully tasty with some grilled meat. :-)

    Followed your recipe exactly and came out with a tangy, flavorful salad that we couldn’t get enough of. Thank you for sharing!

    This looks great! How many radishes do you use? And could I use ACV instead of distilled white vinegar or do you think that would change the flavor too much?

    • She Likes Food says

      Thanks!! I used about 4-5 radishes I think. Really as much or as little as you like! You could definitely use ACV instead. It will probably change the taste a little bit but I think it would still taste good :)
