Creamy Prebiotic Potato Salad Recipe (Simple, Easy) (2024)

June 25th, 2015| Posted By: Magdalena Wszelaki| Posted in Adrenals, Anti-Candida, Estrogen Dominance, Menopause, PCOS, Recipes, Salads, Thyroid

This recipe is packed with lots of healing foods. To start with, cold potatoes are high in resistant starch which is a prebiotic, or food for the good bacteria. Resistant starch helps beneficial bacteria to colonize the gut for them tostay there longer and be more effective.

Furthermore,the recipe contains actual probiotic-rich foods such as sauerkraut. You can replace it with lacto-fermented dillpickles (not the ones in vinegar).

Developing this recipe took me back to my Eastern European roots where potatoes and sauerkraut are staple foods. I still remember my mom making this salad for large family gatherings, and thissalad always got high praise. Since I’m not a fan of Polish cuisine, this recipe caughtmy interest only because of itshealing properties and the idea of putting probiotic-rich food together with a prebiotic in one meal.

If you have a problem with nightshades, I do not recommend this recipe. Instead, go to my article about resistant starch and look for other culinary options (yes, there are a few there).

  1. Thanks much !
    Ok to make with purple/sweet potatoes? thank you.


    • Yes R, sweet potatoes do not have as much resistant start as regular potatoes. ~Deanna HB Team


  2. This is the most incredible potato salad I have ever eaten. I made my own mayo (WITH eggs). I previously would not eat anything with mayo, but since I made it myself and could control what was in it, I thought it was OK to add back into my diet.


    • Hi Leah,
      Thank you for sharing. How are you doing with eggs back in your eating plan? ~Deanna HB Team


  3. I don’t have brine from ferments or macro-fermented sauerkraut. Where can I get those or can I use something comparable?


    • Hi Tamela,

      You can buy the lacto-fermented sauerkraut and use that juice-or 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar ~Deanna HB Team


      • [emailprotected] where can you find lacto fermented sauerkraut? All I see are the traditional canned kind. Thank you.


        • Hi Marsha,
          You can check out your local grocery and it will be in a refrigerated section, mine is usually near the prepared foods/deli.

  4. I’ve been told that potatoes are too high glycemic so it’s not suggested for those that struggle with insulin resistance. What are your thoughts?


    • Hi Marie,
      It is recommended the serving size is followed. We hope you check it out ~HB Team


  5. Those with nightshade problems CAN eat potatoes on occasion, if they are peeled before cooking!!

    Thank you!!


    • Hi Shireen, Have you checked out Magdalena’s cookbook, Cooking for Hormone Balance? One of the therapeutic diets in the book is the anti-candida diet,along with meal plans and recipes you would find very helpful.
