Spring Vegetable Potato Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Healthy, fresh, and delicious Spring Vegetable Potato Salad prepared with asparagus, potatoes, hard boiled eggs, and beans. A tangy and sweet homemade Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette brings everything together. 

Fabulous and bright Vegetable Potato Salad that’s perfect as a main dish, or serve it as a side with your favorite chicken recipe. I also like to pack it up in a tortilla wrap for a quick lunch on the go. 

How many of you make too many Easter eggs and then don’t know what more to do with them? RAISING BOTH HANDS! That’s me, all the way! I make way too many because in our culture we exchange Easter eggs with family, neighbors, friends, etc… So I make a lot of eggs, JUST IN CASE! 

Sidenote: “Just in case” is my life motto. Every.thing. I do too-much-of is justified by “just in case”. Anyone else?! Lemme see those hands! 

Thus, this Potato Salad came to existence due to too many hard boiled eggs. But, I’m not complaining. The salad is awe.some!

SPRING VEGETABLE POTATO SALAD

With the amazing produce spring brings, one of the best ways to enjoy it is in this fresh salad. It is a beautiful salad to serve to company, or bring to a Bridal Shower or a potluck.

Small potatoes, bright green asparagus, kidney beans, corn, and perfectly boiled eggs, all arranged over a bed of crunchy salad. The Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette delivers BIG on the flavors with a nice tang that’s perfectly balanced by a hint of sweetness. 

The salad is a bit time consuming because you have to boil everything separately. The potatoes will need around 20 minutes to boil, asparagus is done in about 5 to 7 minutes, and if you don’t have hard boiled eggs, you will obviously have to make those, as well.

However, you definitely don’t have to wait for one thing to get done cooking before you jump on the other; use three stove-top burners to make things go quicker.

Fresh lemon juice and olive oil pair perfectly with garlic and dijon mustard to make this simple salad dressing. Just combine oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, garlic, and seasonings in a bowl, whisk, and pour over the salad.

    1. This was fantastic and easily managed substitutes. Had most of the ingredients, but substituted Italian green beans in place of asparagus, red onion in place of green and fresh, for canned corn. Everyone loved it. I would easily make this a main dish by adding some chicken breast.
