While this Everything Bagel Potato Salad delivers BIG flavor, it’s actually surprisingly simple to make! All you’ll need is 9 wholesome ingredients and less than 30 minutes.

First, chop your potatoes into bite-sized pieces. I used mini gold potatoes, but regular red or yellow will work well too. Add them to a large pot, cover with water and a pinch of salt, then bring to a boil and cook until tender.

In the meantime, prep the rest of the salad ingredients and whisk the easy-peasy dressing together! Then all you have to do is drain the potatoes, rinse them with cold water, toss them in the bowl, and serve.

There are about a million and two potato salad recipes on the internet, so I wanted to do things a bit differently with this one. It still tastes pretty classic, but the extra tang from the pickled red onions and crunchy, garlick-y flavor from the Everything Bagel Seasoning really help to take things to the next level.

I also am not a huge fan of (aka pretty much detest) relish, so I switched that out with a finely chopped dill pickle instead! If you prefer things to be a little sweeter, you can still use regular relish. A bread & butter pickle would also do the trick.

This Everything Bagel Potato Salad has become a summer staple for me. Once you try it, I think you’ll see why! It’s the perfect side for barbecues, picnics, cookouts, and potlucks with family and friends. Creamy, carby, and oh-so-yummy, it’ll leave anyone feeling full and satisfied — vegan or not!

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • The flavors of this salad only improve with time. I would suggest chilling it in the fridge at least 4 hours before serving, but overnight would be even better.
  • I made my own Everything Bagel seasoning blend for this recipe, which is listed in the notes below! You can also use store-bought if you’d like – same goes for the Mayo.
  • Want to get crazy? Toss in some plant-based bacon or cheddar-style cheese shreds for a fun twist!

  1. I LOVED it!!! LOVED! This is going to be the salad I bring to family gatherings and such. It’s perfect. It’s original and different, but the ingredients are ones that everyone would love. Great job.

  2. I looove potato salad. And bagels. Definately gonna do my own seasoning! I havej just one question – by “minced” onion you mean fresh onion (veggie)? 🙂 Or dried version, as spice?

  3. Wow! So So good! Made it with russet potatoes because that is all I had on hand. This salad is so creative and so delicious! I prefer it over regular potato salad. Also, the vegan mayo is amazing! So versatile and easy. Your recipes are always so incredible
