During the summer, we love to invite our family & friends over to our backyard and enjoy some great food & wonderful company. One of our staple recipes for summer gatherings is a great potato salad. Today, I’m going to share with you all a fun twist on the classic recipe. This potato salad combines the brightness of fresh peas, the sourness of pickles, the heat of Colman’s Mustard Powder and the creaminess of coconut milk. I can’t wait to share the details (scroll all the way to the bottom for the detailed recipe).
Spicy Potato Salad
You can use any type of potatoes for this recipe, but I chose to use these gourmet medley potatoes. They come in different colors (so festive, right?) and are smaller in size. Baby red potatoes would also make a good choice, but even regular old Russet potatoes would work.
While the potatoes are cooking in boiling water, I gathered the rest of my ingredients: scallions, peas, coconut milk, pickles, red pepper flakes, and Colman’s Mustard Powder. This flavorful mustard is perfect for all of my summer recipes. Since it’s in powder form, it’s so convenient to add the flavor & heat of mustard into so many different recipes.
Once the potatoes are cooked & cooled, I combined them in a bowl with scallions, pickles and peas. I also combined the other remaining ingredients to form the sauce. With Colman’s Mustard, you can add a little bit (or a lot) of heat to all your favorite recipes.
Once the sauce is poured over the salad, the dish is complete- and ready to be enjoyed! I love the balance of flavors and textures in this dish.
With Colman’s Mustard Powder, my summer recipes are definitely taken to the next level. I know I will be reaching for Colman’s Mustard many more times this season!

I like the kick you added in your potato salad. It makes mine look extra boring. I will try yours when we have our next cookout!!
Potato Salad is a family favorite, especially during the summertime. I love how you used the different colored potatoes to make it even prettier. I’ve never had coconut milk in potato salad, so I’ll have to try your recipe. Looks delicious!
I would never think of adding spice to my potato salad! This is a really unique way to change up traditional potato salad! I love my mom’s recipe (technically my aunt’s, but who is keeping track lol).
We love the multi- colored potatoes. Haven’t tried using them in potato salad! Have to try this for a BBQ.
Hands up I love a good potato salad, although I don’t think I’ve had one quite like this before. I am definitely going to have to give it a whirl.
I have never had a potato salad with peas in it before. I keep seeing recipes with them though so I guess I am missing out.
Potato Salad is one of my go-to summer side dishes but I don’t think I’ve ever tired spicy Potato Salad before! What a fun way to spice up traditional Potato Salad. I can’t wait to make this for my next BBQ!
Mm, I love spicy foods so I would enjoy this. I’ve always been a fan of potato salad so adding a kick to it sounds great.
What a unique potato salad recipe! I love summertime because of all the bbq foods like yummy side salads.
Wow, very interesting.
I have never thought of using coconut milk as a dressing/sauce for potato salad. That really looks interesting to try. Thank you for the recipe. This would be a pleasant surprise for my family who loves spicy food.
It’s been a while since I had a potato salad. I think I should try this one and even add a spicy flavor.
I honestly have no idea why I have never thought to make a spicy version of a classic. This is so brilliant!
