Summer is almost here, and that means lots of weekend cookouts, where we get the grill going and have friends over. Eating low sodium at a party can be tough, but with a few simple swaps, you can make low sodium versions of classic summer BBQ fare.

Most potato salad recipes are loaded with mayonnaise and salt, but this version uses half sour cream and herbs to give the dish a nice tang without adding salt. It’s bright, fresh, and topped with lemon pepper for a citrusy kick.

A Great Low Sodium Potato Recipe

Potatoes are naturally low in sodium – they naturally contain 5mg of sodium per a 100 ounce serving. Potatoes contain potassium and can be a good source of Vitamin C if you enjoy them with the peels on.

Potatoes are one of our favorite staples on a low sodium diet. We love making crispy oven-baked fries, making garlic mashed potatoes,  and making twice baked potatoes for a low salt side dish. Browse all our low sodium potato recipes here to find your next favorite!

What’s In This Low Salt Potato Salad Recipe?

  • Potatoes – I used yellow potatoes, but you can use white or red. I would stay away from Russets in this recipe as they don’t keep their texture as well when being diced.
  • White vinegar – which infuses potatoes with extra flavor when added to the potatoes when they are warm.
  • Hardboiled eggs – I always use this easy method for perfect hardboiled eggs every time!
  • Low Sodium Mayonnaise: If you have 5 minutes, you can make this easy low sodium mayonnaise recipe in your blender or food processor! If you’re looking for a store-bought option, this mayo has only 50mg per serving, which is about half the sodium of traditional brands.
  • Sour Cream – which usually has no salt added, making this potato salad super creamy without adding salt.
  • Mustard Powder: I love adding this mustard powder to this recipe instead of traditional mustard (which can contain extra sodium).  The mustard powder adds a nice sharpness and tang to this potato salad – and has 0mg sodium!
  • Celery
  • Green Onions
  • Salt-Free Lemon Pepper Seasoning – this salt free lemon pepper seasoning is one of our favorite low sodium spices! It brings a ton of flavor from real lemon and pepper corns, and is SO good in this recipe.

How Do I Make This No Salt Added Potato Salad?

  1. Wash potatoes, and peel them if desired (I keep the peels on mine, personal preference). Place potatoes in a large pot. Fill pot with cold water, and place pot on the stove and bring potatoes to a boil. Boil for 12 to 18 minutes until potatoes are tender and can be pierced with a fork.
  2. Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl, and toss with white vinegar, and allow potatoes to cool. The vinegar will absorb into the warm potatoes, infusing them with flavor.
  3. Once potatoes are cool enough to handle, dice into 1/2 inch thick bite-sized pieces. Add potatoes back to the bowl.
  4. To the potatoes, add the chopped hardboiled eggs, low sodium mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard powder, celery, and green onions. Toss well to combine. Top with lemon pepper seasoning.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
