Spicy Potato Salad

Nothing says picnic or family gathering like a good potato salad. However, the traditional recipe can be hard to travel with, think of all that mayonnaise, and can be heavy on the stomach. For a new, lighter spin on this traditional picnic food favorite, try our spicy potato salad recipe. Infused with Coriander, Lime, and Black Pepper Vitality Essential Oils and fresh herbs, this salad packs a delightful punch of flavor. 



  • 6 medium-sized gold potatoes, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 packed cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 packed cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 packed cup chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper

  • Peel the potatoes and place them in a large pot of boiling water. Cook for about 10 minutes until soft, but not mushy. 
  • Drain the potatoes, dry them, and cube them.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a cast-iron skillet on medium. Stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, and dried wolfberries. Cook for 2-3 minutes then add the turmeric. 
  • Toss in the potatoes, and mix well to coat. Add the fresh cilantro, parsley and dill. Cook for 4 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Mix 2 tablespoon of olive oil with all the Vitality Essential Oils. Drizzle over the potato salad until fully mixed.
  • Add salt and black pepper to your taste.
  • Top with more red pepper flakes and the remaining fresh herbs. 

You can serve this potato salad warm or at room temperature.
