Super Sweet Potato Salad

Super Sweet Potato Salad


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar or red-wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and cubed
  • 1/2 Cup dried cranberries

Place the sweet potatoes in large saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Cover the saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook at a low boil until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, transfer to large bowl, and let cool, about 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, orange juice, maple syrup, mustard, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Slowly whisk in canola oil until well blended. Set aside.

Add the apple, dried cranberries, and pecans to the sweet potatoes. Toss gently with the dressing. Serve warm or chilled.

Sweet Potato Salad

Spring is here and summer is around the corner, which means it is BBQ season! Here is my take on potato salad. If you do not use/have vegan mayo you can easily substitute it with silken tofu, lemons, and a splash or oil.


  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes (chopped to bite size)
  • 3-4 pounds red or purple potatoes (chopped to bite size)
  • 2 cups celery, chopped
  • 1 large red onion minced
  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1 small jar capers
  • 1 small jar pimentos
  • 1 tbs garlic
  • 1 cup sliced olives
  • 1 small bunch green onion, chopped
  • 1 cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Boil the potatoes until fork tender. The sweet potatoes only require 3-4 minutes of cook time, add later to the pot of regular potatoes.

Step 2

Mix the ‘mayo’, sugar, vinegar, mustard in a small bowl. Get to the sweetness you like.

Step 3

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and allow to sit for 3-4 hours or overnight

The 15 Best Potato Salad Recipes Gallery

It’s easy to overlook the humble potato salad. Though no picnic or backyard barbecue would be complete without it, making this iconic summer side dish can feel more like a chore given to you by a potluck host and less like an exciting opportunity to show off your skills in the kitchen.

And these 15 recipes shake up your preconceived notions of what a potato salad can and cannot be.

Some of these recipes have truly unique mix-ins, such as black beans, apples, and blue cheese. But don’t worry.

Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad

One of my favorite salads for Christmas is the Waldorf Salad. A search on the web directed me to The Kitchen Project website with a write-up on the The History of Waldorf Salad. It says here that the salad was created at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in 1896 by the maître d’hôtel, Oscar Tschirky. The salad was an instant success. I can’t remember when was the first time I tasted Waldorf salad but it was certainly an instant success with me. I have always associated this sweet, crunchy salad with Christmas, perhaps because of the colors.

A few years back, I chance upon this wonderful cookbook by Janet Ballantyne called Joy of Gardening Cookbook. This classic vegetable cookbook has more than 350 step-by-step color photographs on the recipes presented. This is an older cookbook and I am not even sure if it is still in print. If you love vegetables, it is definitely worth your while to check out this book. She has a recipe in here for Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad. The addition of sweet potatoes is just delightful. The sweet potatoes not only give the salad a contrast of textures but also a lovely color.

This recipe was adapted from Janet Ballantyne’s Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad. I have also added some dried cranberries to give it a pop of color. Instead of serving it on a bed of lettuce, I chose to serve it on a bed of baby greens. I hope you will give this salad a try.

Sweet Potato Salad with Agave Mustard Dressing

This Sweet Potato Salad with Agave Mustard Dressing was inspired by a sweet potato salad that I would get many years ago. Every time I would go visit my friends who live in northern Arizona, I would check out the deli in the local natural food store.

Many times I would leave with a variety of goodies for the road. One of those treats was a vegan sweet potato salad. The grocery store was taken over by Whole Foods recently, so I no longer get to to satisfy my sweet potato salad fix when I go see my friends. Maybe Whole Foods will have a similar potato salad when I visit them next.

Whenever I travel I love to check out health food stores to see what they carry. There have been many times that I find products that my local stores don't carry. I love trying new vegan gluten free products.

Perusing the local health food stores when I travel is one of the things on my must see list. Some people have to see certain tourist attractions, I have to see the local health food stores!

The potato salad that I had obviously left an impression on me because I had to recreate it. This Sweet Potato Salad with Agave Mustard Dressing is basically sweet mustard dressing, sweet potato, red onion, and parsley. Simple, right!

With Labor Day around the corner, I thought this vegan potato salad would be the perfect time to share this recipe. It's perfect for a picnic or BBQ because you can serve it at room temperature.

37 Best Salad Recipes

A big, bountiful salad is the best way to celebrate delicious seasonal produce! Here are 37 stunning salad recipes I love to make again and again.

Salad recipes are my favorite way to showcase vibrant, in-season produce – fruits and veggies that are so good on their own that you don’t need to do much to make them into a delicious meal. On cold winter nights, I like to brighten up our dinner table with a big, colorful mix of root veggies and hearty greens. On beautiful, warm days when I’d rather be outside than in the kitchen, summer salads are the perfect solution: they’re simple to toss together, but they’re totally delicious nonetheless.

Whether you want to add more plant-based meals to your diet or are simply looking to change up your salad game, you’ll find tons of inspiration in the salad recipes below. With everything from green salads to pasta salads and beyond, these recipes are perfect for passing at potlucks, serving as dinner sides, and enjoying as full meals on their own.

Slaw Salad Recipes

Slaws are some of the best make-ahead salad recipes out there. Typically made with hearty vegetables like cabbage, kale, or broccoli, they’re sturdy enough to be dressed ahead of time. I like to accent the veggie base with a punchy dressing, herbs, and even fruit for maximum flavor.

Make this salad for your next picnic, and it’ll be a guaranteed hit. A tahini miso dressing gives it a creamy umami coating, while peaches add juicy pops of sweetness. I finish it with toasted pepitas for crunch.

You won’t miss the bacon in this lightened-up take on classic broccoli salad. Smoky roasted nuts take its place, adding delectable savory bites. A lightly creamy, sweet & tangy dressing takes the whole thing over the top.

As soon as the temperature starts to dip in the fall, I look forward to making this salad. Made with just 7 ingredients, it’s a breeze to put together, but a bright lemon dressing, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, and dried cranberries make it zippy, fresh, and satisfying.

Pasta Salad Recipes

You couldn’t make a list of salad recipes without including this category! Pasta salads are the ultimate summer picnic food or party dish any time of year – they’re great to make ahead, they can double as a side and a main dish, and they’re a hearty showcase for the season’s best produce.

As its name suggests, this one is a breeze to make. Just whisk together the zippy lemon dressing at the bottom of a big bowl, add the other ingredients, and toss to create a heavenly tangy/creamy/crunchy/fresh summer combo.

Diced mango adds a surprising sweet twist to this colorful orzo, red onion, bell pepper, herb, and cucumber salad.

My veggie-packed take on a deli-style pasta salad! I swap spiralized summer squash for half the noodles and a creamy tahini dressing for a mayo-based one. It’s a healthier version of the grocery counter classic, but it’s just as good.

Sun-dried tomatoes add delicious umami bites to this super green combination of summer veggies, basil, pasta, and pine nuts.

A mix of jammy roasted cherry tomatoes and juicy fresh ones makes this guy one of my favorite summer salads. With spiced roasted chickpeas, tangy feta, and big pearls of couscous, it’s hearty enough to be a meal on its own.

Not your average pasta salad! Tossed in a tangy sesame-ginger dressing and piled with green veggies and avocado, this soba noodle salad is a light, refreshing summer meal.

Green Salad Recipes

A big green salad is one of my go-to meals all year round. In the summer, the lettuces I find at the farmers market are so soft & sweet that a big green summer salad is really a treat. In the winter, I use a bright, bold dressing to punch up hearty greens like kale. I’ll often make these recipes for lunch, but you could also toss them together to serve as a side dish at your next cookout or dinner party.

Savory shiitake walnut taco “meat” is the star of this salad, and zippy cilantro lime dressing gives it a fresh finishing touch. Enjoy this salad as a meal on its own, or serve it as a starter with fajitas or tacos.

This plant-based riff on a classic Cobb salad swaps baked tofu for chicken breast and smoky toasted coconut for bacon. A creamy, tangy dressing ties it all together.

12. Grilled Romaine Vegan Caesar Wedges

One of my favorite green salads of all time! Crisp romaine gets lightly charred, then drizzled with an irresistibly tangy cashew vegan caesar dressing. This one is on page 111 of our new cookbook, Love & Lemons Every Day.

This vibrant kale salad is a treat year-round. I pile it high with a rainbow of crunchy veggies, toasted seeds, creamy avocado, and savory roasted chickpeas. Doused in a tangy carrot ginger dressing, it’s hearty enough to be a meal on its own.

Tomato Summer Salads

If there’s one veggie (or fruit, if you’re looking to get technical) that’s the star of summer, the tomato is definitely it. Here are some of my favorite summer salad recipes that put tomatoes front & center.

I love how big cubes of feta, juicy tomatoes, olives, herbs, bell peppers, and cucumber tumble together in this stunning summer salad with a homemade Greek salad dressing. You only need 7 ingredients and a few minutes to put together this juicy/crisp/tangy/savory combo. What are you waiting for?

Fresh chiles add some heat to the sweet, juicy mix of tomatoes & watermelon in this recipe.

Roasting cherry tomatoes gives them an intense sweet & savory flavor that’s fantastic alongside eggplant, arugula, and nutty farro.

17. Heirloom Tomato Fattoush

Once you start bringing home those juicy farmers market heirloom tomatoes, make this salad! It’s my non-traditional take on fattoush, a bread salad made with toasted pita. This one has a layer of lemony yogurt and is topped with crispy chickpeas, and lots of fresh herbs. Find it on on page 125 of Love & Lemons Every Day.

The secret to this salad is marinating the tomatoes in a splash of olive oil & sherry vinegar. They become rich & tangy – the perfect contrast for fresh basil, avocado, and a little orzo pasta.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Check out this recipe to find my best tips for making a classic Caprese summer salad.

Corn Summer Salad Recipes

If tomatoes are #1 in the summer, corn comes in as a close #2. Grilled, steamed, or fresh off the cob, it’s the perfect addition to all sorts of summer salads.

This fresh corn salad features all my summer favorites: grilled sweet corn, juicy peaches, and lots of fresh basil! To highlight the crisp, fresh ingredients, I toss it with a zesty chile lime dressing.

If you’ve ever had Mexican street corn, you know that the combination of charred corn, crumbly Cotija, creamy mayo, and cilantro is a hard one to beat. I like to spice mine up with sriracha or adobo sauce, too!

Summer Panzanellas

Panzanellas are hands down my favorite summer salads. You just can’t beat big cubes of bread tossed with juicy summer produce and a good tangy vinaigrette. You can always serve these salads as a side, but they’re great main dish options as well.

Panzanellas may be Italian bread salads, but this recipe’s not all about the bread. Crisp, juicy sweet corn is front and center, playing perfectly off a tangy dressing and bitter greens. I use the corn raw, so this panzanella is super simple to toss together.

Grilled peppers add a lovely sweetness to this veggie-packed summer salad. Along with the veggies, creamy fresh mozzarella makes it extra yummy.

I like to call this one an “everything summer salad.” It’s bursting with juicy peaches, tomatoes, crisp corn, and fresh basil – the best that summer has to offer.

When you’ve made zucchini bread, zucchini cake, baked zucchini, and zucchini pizza, and you STILL have zucchini, make this panzanella. The grilled squash is a great jammy contrast to crisp cucumbers and bursty cherry tomatoes.

Potato Salad Recipes

It’s taken me a while to get on board with potato salad, but over the last few years of experimenting with bold dressings and different mix-ins, I’ve become totally hooked. Here are a few of my favorites.

This lightened-up rendition of classic potato salad has a luscious Greek yogurt dressing with just a bit of mayo mixed in. It’s the perfect make-ahead salad, as the flavor deepens as it sits in the fridge.

If you’re grilling veggie burgers, make this summer salad right along with them. Not only are the potatoes grilled here, but the blueberries are too! A yummy grilled scallion vinaigrette, fresh herbs, and pickled onions accent this fun sweet/charred pairing.

28. Chimichurri Potato Salad

I toss this potato salad in a tangy, herbaceous chimichurri instead of a creamy dressing. It’s a fan favorite from Love & Lemons Every Day – find it on page 119.

This summery bean salad is incredibly versatile. Dress it up with a soft-boiled egg or chickpeas to make it a meal, or serve the mix of potatoes, green beans, and lemony dressing as a simple grilling side.

Fruity Summer Salads

Of course, your summer salads should feature the wonderful fresh vegetables we have at this time of year, but it’d be remiss not to take advantage of the fantastic fruits that abound too! Stone fruits, berries, and melon are all delicious sweet additions to summer salad recipes.

Skip the tomatoes the next time you’re making tabbouleh, and use dried tart cherries instead! They add great chewy texture and sweet/tart flavor to this fresh dish.

Or…use strawberries! Like tomatoes, they’re juicy & sweet. Another nontraditional ingredient – feta – adds a great salty contrast to the berries in this recipe.

This poke-inspired summer salad features juicy cubes of watermelon and crunchy macadamia nuts along with conventional poke fixings like cucumber, ginger & avocado. I toss it all in a tangy tamari-lime dressing to make a super fresh, fun summer dish.

Sure, we all love tomatoes & basil, but peaches & basil are just as good.

Another fruity caprese combo! This time, I use strawberries as well as cherry tomatoes, and I gussy it up with a balsamic reduction, avocado, and toasted pecans for a sweet, nutty crunch.

Fruit salads are a party essential, and we absolutely love this fresh lemon-ginger one. I like to use a star cookie cutter to cut the melon for festive flare!

Make this ultra-refreshing salad on hot summer days! Creamy avocado, tangy feta, and bright lime wonderfully accent cool, juicy melon and cucumber. A handful of fresh herbs is the perfect finishing touch.

Chopped Medjool dates and aromatic cumin add a surprising sweet twist to this hearty chickpea salad. Topped with roasted red peppers, grape tomatoes, and a big sprinkle of goat cheese, it’s a good salad to pack for lunch, but it’s also a guaranteed hit at any gathering.
