Potato Salad 3 Ways

June 5, 2018
by Nicole Gulotta for Thrive Market

No offense to grandma, but her potato salad is a bit old-school. Make it modern with three flavorful recipes to shake up your spuds. The flavors take you around the world from Asia to the Mediterranean, but every dressing starts with a scoop of coconut oil mayo, made with cage-free eggs and superfood coconut oil. The only decision you have to make is which recipe to start with!

Cold German Potato Salad

Yield: 5 to 6 servings
Active Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

1 ½ pounds baby red potatoes, rinsed, scrubbed, and halved

For the dressing:
½ cup Thrive Market Coconut Oil Mayo
1 tablespoon Thrive Market Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
2 teaspoons Thrive Market Organic Stone Ground Mustard

6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and chopped
2 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons loosely packed parsley leaves, chopped

Instructions:

Make the potatoes:
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover by at least 1-inch with cold water. Bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 50 minutes. Drain and cool completely before slicing into quarters.

Make the dressing:
Whisk mayo, apple cider vinegar, mustard, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to a large bowl.
