Potatoes make the world go ’round. Especially when they’re baked to perfection, tossed in a creamy dressing, and topped with chives and coconut bacon. Is your mouth watering yet? I thought so.

Below is the recipe and how-to video so you can make this incredible baked potato salad at home!

So many potato salads are heavy, full of dairy products and lacking in flavor. Plus they seem like they’ve been sitting in those plastic containers at the grocery store for so long!

Fresh food is so much better, and this homemade vegan version will have you singing praises for spuds! This baked potato salad was a hit when I released the recipe video on YouTube, and some even said it was the best one they’ve ever had. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!

  1. I made this yesterday, to have a bit alongside my house salad. So freakin’ good! Best potato salad I’ve had in a long time!

  2. I made this potato salad for a bunch of my non vegan friends and they all said it was the best potato salad ever! & I totally agree! I’m probably going to make some more today to eat with my leftover cauliflower buffalo wings!

  3. I love all your recipes, this is one of my fav blogs. You guys really made it easy to become vegan

    I couldn’t agree with Bhawanpreet’s comment any more! Becoming vegan was easy with your knowledge, support, recipes, motivation and chats on youtube. Your personalities are so welcoming and I am always happy when I get to hang out with you on Wednesdays… Oh yeah.. and this potato salad was BANGIN!

      I should add my non-vegan friend has begged me for the recipe. I’m just going to give her a link to your entire blog so she can explore on her way to finding it 😛 #sneekyveganthings
