While it’s true that my most favorite time to eat paleo potato salad is in the summer at a barbecue, I’ll admit that I love it so much that I can eat paleo potato salad anytime, anywhere. There’s no question that my love for potato salad originated because I grew up in the south, where it is brought to every barbecue, every church luncheon, and, well, everything :) One thing I don’t love about traditional southern-style potato salad, though, is the hard boiled eggs… I’m not an egg person (unfortunately!), so that majorly turns me off to it. UNTIL I experienced Zoey’s Kitchen Potato Salad. It has a light and refreshing vinegar base and a Greek flare too it… I LOVE it, and I’ve recreated it here for you!
So stop running by the grocery store to buy pre-made potato salad… I know, I know. It’s SO easy. But I promise the taste of this Whole30 approved Potato Salad will make it worth the minimal effort it takes to whip it up! And it will help you avoid the preservatives, soy-based mayo, and sugar put in the store-bought varieties.
And now that you’re looking at the recipe below, I know what you’re thinking… Are white potatoes Whole30 Approved?! YES. White potatoes ARE Whole30 approved. I promise :) If you have the original edition of the book, they were not approved at that time. But they made the switch in April 2014 for all potatoes to be approved- hooray! White potatoes are also approved for a paleo diet, although some people following the AIP diet avoid them.
This recipe is best made and enjoyed fresh, but can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.
