One summer I worked at the deli in my local grocery store. And in addition to slicing every variety of meat and cheese on the planet, we sold tubs and tubs of potato salad. We received the salad in these heavy white buckets that required a screwdriver to pop the cover off. And from there, we’d scoop piles of the salad into bowls for the display case and place a fake herb leaf on top to make it look pretty.
I love potato salad, especially with plenty of mustard and maybe some hard-boiled eggs. But after seeing it in bulk for 3 months straight, it completely lost its appeal. Another thing that I distinctly remember was the nutrition label on the side of the buckets. The ingredient list was a mile long with all these chemical-sounding ingredients, most likely preservatives.
Great news though. There is a way to make a wonderfully tangy potato salad without all the preservatives and fattening mayo. Today, I’m presenting you with an easy-to-prepare potato salad with a short ingredient list. And, to switch it up from the usual chunk-style version, I decided to spiralize the potatoes into hearty noodles, which makes for a fun presentation.
The salad comes together in 3 simple steps. First, you’ll spiralize the potatoes and sauté them in a skillet until softened. I’ve been using the Inspiralizer for all of my veggie noodle dishes, and I absolutely love it. I previously used this spiralizer. While the potatoes are cooking, you’ll prepare the salad dressing by simply whisking the Dijon mustard, vinegar, honey and garlic together or using a blender to give the dressing a thick and creamy consistency. The Magic Bullet works wonders in this department. Once the potatoes are cooked and the dressing is made, toss everything together with some chopped onion, and fresh parsley.
My love of potato salad has been restored! If you’re looking for a side dish for this weekend’s BBQ, give this Spiralized Dijon Potato Salad a try. It’s a quick and easy salad that’s big on flavor! Plus, those potato noodles will have everyone intrigued!
