Spring Potato Salad – A dressed-up alternative to the classic potato salad! Hosting bright, fresh veggies topped with a tangy homemade dressing.
With good weather approaching, I have nothing but potato salad on my mind. Every brunch table needs a fresh and tangy side, and this spring potato salad fits the bill!
Tender potatoes and fresh vegetables are tossed in a house made, not your typical potato salad dressing. This potato salad is dressed in more of a French style, with vinegar and mustard rather than mayonnaise, which adds a nice twist to the traditional version!

How to make spring potato salad
- Cook the Potatoes – Wash the potatoes. Cover the potatoes with cold, salted water, and bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until fork tender. Drain well and let cool slightly. Once cooled enough to handle, peel the potatoes and chop into bite size chunks. Place them in a bowl.
- Combine – Chop green onions, slice hard boiled eggs and radishes, then add to the bowl. Next, mix in the olives and combine everything.
- Make the Dressing: Whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Slowly add the olive oil while whisking constantly until the dressing emulsifies slightly. Add salt and pepper.
- Finish & Serve: Gently mix in the dressing and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve.
