A yummy Spanish potato salad with a different taste due to the paprika!

Gluten and dairy-free, with a hint of smokiness, this potato salad brings a unique twist to any party! #potatosalad

When I was a kid, my parents called me the ‘Carbohydrate kid’ – anything with carbs in it and I’d love it … especially hot chips (french fries), baked potatoes with cheese, coleslaw and sour cream, potato salad, mashed potatoes, bread … sometimes even chip sandwiches!  (just remembering my childhood here and drooling a little!).  My mum’s potato salad was nothing like the one in this recipe though – I thought I’d just give you all a recipe for something a little out of the ordinary.

The paprika is what really makes this Spanish potato salad.  It’s a creamy, slightly smoky taste that makes you want to go back for more … and more!

To make this dairy-free, see if you can find some dairy-free sour cream at your grocery store.  In the US, there is a tofu-based option that you wouldn’t even know there was a difference.  Or, if you’d like to make this Spanish potato salad Whole30 compliant, try just using a Whole30 approved mayonnaise, or make it yourself!
