I've been using a lot of Dijon mustard lately, I teamed up with Maille for a sponsored post later in the month and it's been creeping it's way into my food ever since!! It also helps that I had literally ran out of mustard as I got my new one ;) - meant to be.

This time, the mustard found it's way into my potato salad... And I'm in love with the flavor! I also added raw grated carrots because I'm not a fan of the boiled carrot... That mushiness is not for me. Only thing boiled here are some pretty purple and white fingerling potatoes I stumbled upon at the green market in Union Square! This is a perfect lunch side, pack it for a picnic or for a weekday lunch and you're set.

Dijon Fingerling Potato Salad (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free)


  • 2 heaping cups of chopped fingerling potatoes
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp vegenaise or mayonaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garnish: carrot greens or flat leaf parlsey


  1. Prep potatoes by washing the skin and chopping into bite sized pieces, add to a pot and cover with water. Heat over the stovetop (uncovered) until boiling.
  2. Meanwhile, add the mustard, veganaise, minced garlic and grated carrot to a large bowl. Lightly mix with a fork until the dressing comes together.
  3. Once potatoes are boiling, stick them with a fork - once tender (but not falling apart), remove from heat and strain in a colander. Let sit until potatoes are warm to the touch.
  4. Add potatoes to the large bowl over the dressing and mix with a rubber spatula until potatoes are coated.
  5. Add salt, pepper and greens for garnish. Stir once more and serve!
