Low FODMAP potato salad on a white plate

Low FODMAP potato salad

Thanks to my blog, I sometimes make recipes that I wouldn’t probably have made if I didn’t have a blog. Usually, these are things that I don’t like eating so much, such as potato mash, chili con carne and low FODMAP potato salad.

The funny thing is that I often find out that I actually quite like the dish when I make it myself. And that happened too when I made this potato salad! 

Here in the Netherlands, this classic potato salad is often served at BBQs and buffets. We call it hussar salad and it is usually made with potatoes, meat, eggs, pickles, and mayonnaise.

People often buy ready-made potato salads in the supermarket and when I was younger I absolute despised those salads. When we had a BBQ, I would always steer clear of these salads.

You also had snack-size potato salads that you could buy for on-the-go and in high school, this was a favorite snack for many kids. I

couldn’t understand how people could enjoy that greasy salad with chunks of undefined pieces of food. Those salads from the supermarket just didn’t look tasty at all. 

My boyfriend is from Slovenia and there they have a similar recipe for potato salad, that they call French salad.

He made that for Christmas, with potatoes, carrots, pickles, and lots of mayonnaise.

I actually quite liked it and I thought, if I like this, I will probably like our classic hussar salad too if I make it from scratch! 

Low FODMAP potato salad on a white plate

I made a classic potato salad, how lots of people eat it here in the Netherlands, with potato, diced ham, egg, and pickles. Often peas are added to this salad too.

Because peas are not low FODMAP, I used canned green beans that I chopped up finely. To make the dressing not too greasy, I used some lactose-free yogurt next to the mayonnaise. 

This low FODMAP potato salad is super simple to make and A LOT tastier than a store-bought potato salad, if you ask me.

A good reason to make this yourself (and I think it would be quite hard to find a store-bought potato salad that is low FODMAP). I am very curious about what you will think of this recipe!
