Easy Gnocchi Potato Salad {Gluten Free, Vegan}


Simple, easy and delicious Gnocchi Potato Salad side dish recipe that’s dairy free, gluten free and perfect for a cookout or party!

Hooray, it’s Monday! I swear I am excited and not being sarcastic! :) As much as I love the weekend, I am craving some stability and routine especially with all the craziness that’s been going on lately.  It might sound a little bit drastic but I decided to start another half marathon training cycle today just to keep myself on track.  

Time consuming? Eh, maybe but it gets my butt out of bed in the morning and keeps me accountable and moving forward.  

Anyway, none of that has anything to do with today’s recipe….other than the fact that I came up with it in a time of chaos and despair.  

You see, my husband was out of town this weekend and with a million things on my to do list, dinner didn’t cross my mind until I was hungry.  Actually, I was beyond hungry, I was straight up HANGRY. 

After scouring the cupboards I found some gluten free gnocchi that I never made and decided in a stroke of hungry genius that it needed to become a pasta/potato take on traditional dairy laden potato salad.

Sounds kinda strange to use gluten free gnocchi when you could just use naturally gluten free potatoes BUT in my defense, the gnocchi actually takes LESS time to cook which puts it in my belly just that much faster! 😉
