Buffalo Ranch Potato Salad (Paleo & Whole30)

posted in: Uncategorized

What screams summer more than potato salad? Buffalo Ranch Potato Salad, obviously! This is officially my favorite potato salad. EVER. In all of existence.

I realized right after I made this recipe and took pictures of it, that crispy bacon on top would have been a delicious addition, so feel free to add some if you’d like! This is also a great dish to make in advance, as I think it tastes even better the next day!

With the 4thof July right around the corner here in the US, this Buffalo Ranch Potato Salad is the perfect dish to bring to a barbecue or party with friends and family! Or you can be like my husband and just eat the whole batch to yourself…while standing right over the kitchen counter, haha. Who can blame him, it’s SOOO GOOD!

If you’re new to paleo and are confused about the whole “are potatoes paleo?” deal, I get it, cause I was totally confused when I first started out too. I highly recommend reading this post that I wrote all about it…and you’ll get a delicious recipe for my Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Potatoes while you’re at it!

An immersion blender is gonna be your bff for making this buffalo ranch dressing (and my other favorite sauces, like my Chipotle Aioli and Jalapeño Ranch), but if you don’t have one just yet, I’d follow this recipe for making mayo in your blender, and just add the remaining ingredients from my recipe. Just trust me when I say that using an immersion blender is wayyy easier, and fool-proof!

Buffalo Ranch Potato Salad

Ingredients

    For The Potato Salad:
  • 2 lbs red or yellow potatoes, scrubbed (approximately 6 medium potatoes)
  • 3 celery stalks, finely diced
  • ½ small red onion, finely diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until fork tender, but still firm, approximately 15-20 minutes. Drain the potatoes. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, chop them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, let’s make the buffalo ranch! Place the avocado oil, egg, mustard powder, lemon juice and sea salt into a tall container (I use a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup). Place an immersion blender at the bottom and turn on. Once the mixture starts to blend together and become thick, move the immersion blender towards the top until it’s well blended. This should take less than a minute. Add the hot sauce and blend once more until combined. Stir in the dill, parsley and garlic.
  3. Place the potatoes, celery, red onion in a large bowl, and toss with the buffalo ranch until well combined. Top with the green onion and ENJOY!

    I have had this recipe bookmarked since watching you make it on the Whole30 recipes takeover week and I finally made it today (not sure what took me so long!). I used your trick of cooking the potatoes in the instant pot and I was able to whip this together in about 38 seconds. DE LISH!!!! Waiting for dinner to be ready will be a chore, hence the reason I’m distracting myself with this blog comment haha

    This was amazing! My my daughter is allergic to egg, so I subbed a big scoop of sour cream and put a little less oil in, worked great!

    Hi! Earlier this summer, you posted a video of you making your potato salad. In it you used your instant pot for the potatoes. I can’t find the video and can’t remember what you did (how much water in pot and for how long)!! Can you please tell me where to find that video or remind me how you did it?
    Thanks!!

      Hey Mary! For medium-ish potatoes, it was for 9 minutes on manual (high) pressure with 1 cup of water! I also let the pressure naturally release.
