  • 3 lb baby red potatoes
  • 1 cup vegan mayonnaise (store-bought or homemade; see notes below for oil-free options)
  • ¼ cup non-pareil capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2-4 tablespoon chopped scallions, depending on preference
  • 4 teaspoon dried dill weed (substitute ¼ cup chopped fresh dill if desired)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¾-1 teaspoon fine sea salt or kosher salt (amount depending on preference)
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper


  • Scrub the skins of the potatoes and cut into small pieces of similar size. Add the chopped potatoes to a pot. Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Once the potatoes are boiling, lower the heat to medium-high and boil until fork tender, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow them to cool at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. You can enjoy right away or refrigerate until ready to serve.



To make this recipe oil-free, use our silken tofu mayo or our cashew mayo.
