Potato Salad with Mustard Dressing {vegan, gluten free}

This Potato Salad with Mustard Dressing is the perfect summer side. I basically just combined a load of my favourite foods into one salad so it’s no surprise I can’t stop eating it! It’s vegan and gluten free, making it the perfect dish to suit almost everyone.

You can serve this salad warm or cold, both are equally delicious. I love any form of potato salad, but with the addition of the pickled gherkins and juicy sundried tomatoes, this version is a nice change to the usual mayonnaise-packed version. It’s hearty, delicious, and pretty addictive. Perfect to serve at a barbecue along side a loaded vegan burger!

  • 600-700g new potatoes, scrubbed + chopped in half (unless they’re really small ones!)
  • Handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 a red onion, finely sliced 
  • 1-2 pickled gherkins, finely diced 
  • 5-6 sundried tomatoes (jarred), sliced  

For the dressing:

  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Add the potatoes to a large saucepan and cover with water and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for around 20 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small jug or bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Add the potatoes (you can let them cool first or keep them warm, both are delicious!) to a large bowl along with the parsley, red onion, gherkins and sundried tomatoes and mix.
  4. Pour over the dressing and stir. Serve and enjoy!
