Got an outdoor gathering this weekend? These delightful grilled potato salad skewers with aquafaba mayo are a favorite of mine for sharing with friends and family – and even strangers!
Once you whirl up a batch of the cool chickpea liquid-based mayo, this “no-recipe” recipe is quite simple. You’ll insert halved, boiled peewee or baby creamer potatoes on skewers, brush with olive oil, and grill. Then, arrange the skewers on dressed arugula and season with salt and paprika or cinnamon. Or season as you desire.
Next, drizzle with aquafaba mayo and harissa sauce, and finish with plenty of fresh mint – and/or chives or dill. (And yep, if you want to make this even easier, just swap the aquafaba mayo for your favorite jarred mayo.)
This is definitely a memorable way to do a plant-based “creamy” potato salad. Hope you try it soon! And if you do, please let me know how it goes!

What can you make with the chickpeas since they’re not used in the aquafaba recipe? Try pasta with sumac chickpeas, spinach, tomatoes and creamy mint-tahini sauce (recipe HERE), curried chickpea salad with grilled veggies (recipe HERE), pulse-based “egg” salad (recipe HERE), or lemony herb “orzotto” with garlicky chickpeas (recipe HERE).
