Vegan Potato Salad Recipe
Memorial Day for many of us marks the kickoff to summer fun, food and festivities! If you’re getting together today for outdoor gatherings and barbecues but want to stay more plant based, try my recipe remix of a vegan version of potato salad. It’s a crowd pleaser amongst vegans and omnivores alike 🙂 Whatever is on your agenda today, have fun, stay safe and most importantly, let this day be full of gratitude and reflection about the service men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our liberties!
- 6 medium red/new potatoes, diced
- 1-2 celery stalks, diced
- 1/2 cup sweet peppers, diced
- 1 cup vegan mayo (such as Vegenaise)
- 3 Tablespoons mustard (preferably Dijon)
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/2 Tablespoon parsley, fresh or dried
- 1/2 teaspoon or more sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon or more ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon or more paprika (optional)
Place a pot on the stove with salted water and bring to a boil. Gently add diced potatoes and cook until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside in fridge while you prepare dressing. For the dressing, add the vegan mayo, apple cider vinegar and seasonings to a bowl or blender and mix well. In a large bowl combine the potatoes, diced sweet peppers and celery and give it a good stir. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture, stir well so that everything is mixed and dressed. Add more salt and pepper to your liking. For best flavor, allow to set in fridge at least an hour or two prior to serving.
This picture above is unfortunately not of the best quality but I took it when I had the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. a few years ago. It was moving to see the all the gold stars–and then it really set in when I realized “EACH gold star represents 100 American service personnel who died or remain missing in the war” and that’s just WWII! And to think; how many wars have been fought since then and before!?!?! Eternal gratitude for these men, women, and their families all year round!
