Lemon Potato Salad! This simple mayo-free potato salad is perfect for summer. Thanks to the Little Potato Company for sponsoring this post. We adore their Creamer potatoes!
Temps have creeped into the mid-seventies over the past week, which means I’ve officially put all of my winter clothes in the basement and am ready for flip-flops and outdoor dinners from here on out.
It’s no secret that I love summer. I was made for hot days; I’m always happier in the heat than I am in the cold. And considering how awful last year was, I’m ready to make up for lost time and enjoy as much of this summer as I can.
This simple lemon potato salad has been on repeat in my house the last few weeks. I can’t get over how easy it is to make, once you grab a pack of The Little Potato Company’s Lemon & Garden Herb Microwave Ready potatoes.
Inspired by the bright, fresh flavors of the Mediterranean, this potato pack includes fresh creamer potatoes in a BPA-free steam tray and seasoning packet. The perfect potato salad starter!
Microwave the potatoes for just 5 minutes until tender, then set aside to cool.
While the potatoes are cooking and cooling, prep the rest of the ingredients. You’ll make a simple dressing with olive oil, lemon juice and some of the seasoning packet.
You can stop there, but I like to add in thinly sliced radishes, celery and more fresh parsley for crunch and extra bright flavor.
Chop the cooled potatoes and toss with the dressing. That’s it! So simple and delicious, I know this is going to be your new favorite potato salad.
One of the best parts about potato salad is the ample amount of resistant starch! Resistant starch functions kind of like soluble fiber— which means additional health benefits like improved insulin sensitivity, lower blood sugar levels and increased levels of fullness.
Resistant starch forms in potatoes when they are cooked and then cooled, this cooling process turns some of the digestible starches naturally found in the potato into resistant starches. Again, this reason that this matters is because resistant starch acts a lot like soluble fiber.
Resistant starch feeds the friendly bacteria in your intestine, which has a positive effect on the type of bacteria as well as increases their numbers. Several studies also show that resistant starch can improve insulin sensitivity and lower post-meal blood sugar levels.
This lemon potato salad will last about 2-3 days in the fridge.
Yes! If you’re serving a crowd, then you can easily double this recipe by using two packets of Lemon & Garden Herb Microwave Ready potatoes and increasing the amount of herbs and dressing.
Hope you love this lemon potato salad as much as we do! If you try it, make sure to come back and leave a comment and a rating. Your feedback helps other readers and seeing you make my recipes makes my day.

This potato salad is delicious! My grocery store didn’t have the Little Potato Company potatoes this week, but they had their store brand steamable potatoes. We followed the recipe exactly as you have it, using Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning instead of the packet and extra lemon juice/zest. I think we’ll be making this potato salad a lot this spring and summer!
By the way, I discovered your website a few months ago. Since then I’ve made several of your plant-based dishes and *every* one is a hit! Thank you!
