Let’s Make Low FODMAP Tangy Potato & Egg Salad with Olives & Pickles

I just adore potato salads, but wanted something with ZEST! Like this Tangy Potato & Egg Salad!

In case you haven’t noticed, we have several potato salads you, from a Potato Salad with Fennel and a Cucumber Raita, Potato Salad with Hardboiled Eggs, Potato Salad with Peas & Chives – even a Bacon Potato Salad with Blue Cheese!

This Low FODMAP Tangy Potato & Egg Salad with Olives & Pickles is different from all the rest in that it combines a creamy mayo/sour cream dressing and the vinegary tang of cornichon pickles and black Kalamata olives.

Kids & Adults Follow The Low FODMAP Diet

I was an adventurous eater as a kid and I would have loved this somewhat different potato salad. I would venture to say that not all kids will.

People of all ages follow the low FODMAP diet. If you need to feed a crowd that includes kids, perhaps try the more classic  Potato Salad with Hardboiled Eggs.

Save this Low FODMAP Tangy Potato & Egg Salad with Olives & Pickles for when you are grilling with a bunch of adults and want to serve something that is easy to make, goes with everything and that NO ONE will know is diet food.

Low FODMAP Tangy Potato & Egg Salad with Olives & Pickles

We have several low FODMAP potato recipes for you: this one is creamy yet tangy too, with the addition of cornichon pickles and black olives.

Makes: 6 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Author: Dédé Wilson

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2- pounds (680 g) small yellow-skinned waxy potatoes, scrubbed
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, divided
  • 8 cornichon pickles, sliced thickly crosswise
  • 8 pitted Kalamata olives, sliced thickly crosswise
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1/2 cup (113 g) mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) lactose-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup (10 g) fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

Preparation:

  1. Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and cool slightly. Transfer to large bowl, cut potatoes in half and toss with 1 tablespoon of the vinegar. Cool further until just barely warm to the touch. Fold in the cornichon, olives and celery; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, remaining 1 tablespoon of vinegar and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Scrape this dressing over the potatoes and fold together well. Then fold in the parsley. Your Low FODMAP Tangy Potato & Egg Salad with Olives & Pickles is ready to serve. I actually like it when it is still a tiny bit warm. You can also chill it down.
  3. Can be made 1 day ahead. Store refrigerated in an airtight container until needed.

Tips

  • This recipe works well with any waxy-type potato such as Yukon Gold, or smaller yellow or red-skinned potatoes.
