Oh my god Becky. Look at that barbecue potato salad. It's just so....amazing. Ok, if you are super young then you may have not caught that joke in regards to Becky. But basically, that is what I literally said out loud after a bite into this salad. I was so amazed by how delicious it was. I literally could eat this everyday. Perfect timing and all, for you know, July 4th coming up. Or simply because you want a delicious dish. This is a total twist on the classic potato salad. Well, instead of the typical egg and mayo tangy type of potato salad always served during the summer and parties, the idea of a barbecue flavored potato salad got me quite excited. This idea came to me after so many of you guys have straight up flipped over the deliciousness of my homemade barbecue sauce from my Smoky Barbecue Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers. I wanted to make it the star of another dish and with the holiday coming up, the idea just sounded perfect. And an exciting update...some of you had asked about a caramel color-free liquid smoke, well guess what, I found one! Now, the color doesn't bother me, but if it bothers you, then I found one made by Wright's. I actually found it at my local Central Market here in Texas, but also they are sold on Amazon here! This potato salad has it all. It is full of barbecue flavor, filling potatoes, sweet corn and a nice crunch of raw chopped celery. To me, it's really nice to have a crunch factor when eating cold salads like this and all the potatoes are soft. If you don't like celery, use chopped raw carrots instead, that works too!
The entire recipe is just 8 ingredients (+salt!) It's also perfect for anybody with allergies because it is dairy-free, oil-free and nut-free. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this vegan barbecue potato salad! Drop me a line below please after you make them!
