Rainbow Potato Salad (Vegan, Gluten Free, Vegetarian)

I made this side dish for our 4th of July BBQ, and WOW was it flavorful! Make-ahead dishes are great for entertaining, and this one is perfect.  This potato salad, especially the dressing, is waaaay different from the heavy stuff I’ve had growing up!  Its filled with tons of fresh and vibrant veggies, bold flavors (hello dill!), and a wonderful creamy/crunchy texture when its all mixed together.

I used Yukon Gold potatoes (because thats what I had in the pantry) and they worked out really nicely.  The cooked potatoes slightly fell apart once I stirred them in the dressing, making the potato salad thick but not mushy!  I would recommend leaving the skins on the potatoes. I did because extra vitamins… and I’m lazy.   But this salad would look beautiful with purple or red potato as well- extra rainbow color from the skins.

This recipe is fantastic for entertaining, a huge crowd pleaser, and a far departure from the fatty lumpy potato salad I had growing up!
