This 5-Ingredient Serbian oil and vinegar vegan potato salad recipe is a super simple and delicious potato salad recipe that I have been in love with ever since trying it years ago. For all those people who are looking for a mayo-free potato salad recipe (in other words, a potato salad with no mayonnaise) THIS is the recipe for you, and is this week’s Five Ingredient Friday recipe!
So I know I talk about my amazing in-laws quite a bit (like in this farm to table dinner in your backyard post, or in this recent sheet pan pizza recipe post) but did you know that 1/2 of my in-laws (my husband’s mothers side) is Serbian?
Here is a fun picture from our wedding – we had a traditional Serbian Orthodox wedding: crowns, candles and all!
I talked a little about it in this post for Vanilice Serbian cookies that I posted something like 4 years ago lol. My in-laws are amazing, I love all the different cultural aspects we celebrate, especially those with food.
At holidays, this Serbian oil and vinegar vegan potato salad is always on the table, and I’m so in love with the recipe.
It’s got a great tangy flavor from the vinegar and onions (which I make into almost a quick pickle when cooking the potatoes) and the cooked potatoes and oil make for a smooth silky finish. Seriously, I love this potato salad, it’s a great side dish for any occasion!
Also, this potato salad is great for all the upcoming summer outdoor parties and potlucks – no more worrying about mayo sitting out under the sun for hours and hours. In fact, I know there are many people out there (including my husband and I) who don’t like mayo-based potato salads, I’d highly recommend giving this easy 5 ingredient potato salad a try, they’ll fall in love with it.
