Potato Salad with Fermented Vegetables

Classic potato salad mixed with fermented vegetables makes for a delicious summer barbecue or picnic side dish that everyone will love. Get creative and feel free to add whatever fermented veggies you have on hand for this probiotic take on a beloved warm weather dish.



3 lb potatoes

1.5 cups mayonnaise

1/2 cup fermented vegetables (Whatever you have will work! We like radishes, red peppers, carrots, broccoli, and cucumbers best.)

3 ribs celery

1 tsp chopped chives or red onions

Small bunch flat-leaf parsley

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/8 tsp mustard seeds

5-6 tbsp liquid from any fermented vegetables



  1. Scrub potatoes (no need to peel them) and place in a pot of salted water. Bring water and potatoes to a boil and cook until a knife easily pierces the potatoes. When potatoes are cool, cut into half-inch cubes.
  2. Dice fermented vegetables, celery, and parsley. Place in a large bowl.
  3. Add finely chopped chives or onions and cubed potatoes.
  4. Add mayonnaise, fermenting liquid, salt, pepper, and mustard seeds.
  5. Stir all together and enjoy!
