  • 3 lbs yellow potatoes diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced about 1 medium onion
  • 4 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1 3/4 tbsp yellow curry powder
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise or vegan mayo
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup petite green peas frozen is ok


  • In a large pot, boil potatoes in lightly salted water just until tender. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a wide skillet over medium high heat. Add onions. Saute until fragrant and slightly translucent, about 3 minutes. Add ginger, curry, coriander, cumin, cayenne, and salt. Saute until spices are fragrant and onions are tender, about 3 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Add peas, lime juice, mayonnaise, and cilantro. Stir to combine.
  • Pour onion and pea mixture over potatoes in a large bowl. Fold together to combine. Chill for at least one hour before serving.


  • Use Yukon gold potatoes for a creamy texture. Don't overcook them.
  • You can peel your potatoes if you prefer, or leave the skins on.
  • This salad is even better the next day!
