Honey Dijon Summer Garden Potato Salad by Alison's AllspiceHoney Dijon Summer Garden Potato Salad by Alison's AllspiceHoney Dijon Summer Garden Potato Salad by Alison's AllspiceWhen I’m at a picnic, I am always scouting for dishes with the most vegetables.  Often times veggies can be lacking in comparison to creamy pasta salads and decedent deserts.  This potato salad is loaded with veggies from your summer garden, including sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, and green beans.  Dress this salad in a honey Dijon sauce, and all your veggie loving friends like me will be digging in!

Variations to the Honey Dijon Summer Garden Potato Salad recipe:

  1. Vegan: Use agave in place of the honey to make this recipe vegan.
  2. If you can’t find tri-colored baby potatoes, small red potatoes will do just fine.
  3. Add any fresh herbs to taste.  Parsley or dill would be great options.
  4. The tomatoes in this salad can make it soggy as leftovers.  Mix tomatoes only into what you will be serving. Store any extra salad without the tomatoes and mix them in just before serving.
