I am not a mayonnaise kind of girl. I can only stomach it in small quantities in dips and sauces that disguise the oil-slicked feel and flavor, but other than that…not so much. I shudder at the sight of slaws and salads that are richly drenched in mayonnaise (sorry to the mayo lovers out there!), and therefore, I’m always trying to play with different substitutions that are more pleasing to my palette, and my waistline, of course!
Potato salads are a key player at cookouts and barbecues, and this mayo free version is vibrant, fresh, and light.
At first, I was worried that the loads of herbs used in this recipe would be overpowering. I gave it a try and discovered that the flavors of the fresh herbs are what bring this dish to life! Next time I make it, I’d love to experiment with different herbs. Maybe with chives? And I think it would also be quite yummy with some capers.
