5lbs multi colored new potatoes
1 cup veganaise (sold in store at all Healthy Planet locations)
¼ cup dijon mustard
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons celtic sea salt
1 diced red onion
dill sprigs for garnish
finely chopped dill and parsley for garnish
pepitas for garnish
pinch of ground black pepper
Always clean your vegetables before preparing. Always Scrub potatoes under cold water prior to cooking. In a large pot, boil water and add a pinch of salt to the water. Once the pot starts boiling, add your potatoes. You are looking for them to cook long enough to slide a fork into and remove it easily.
In a large mixing bowl, add your veganaise, dijon mustard, extra virgin olive oil, diced red onion. Mix thoroughly and add salt and pepper to taste. This will give you the dressing for the salad.
Once your potatoes have cooled off and are room temperature, cut in half. Don’t worry about cutting into perfect sizes, the different sizes give it a rustic look! Add your potatoes once are diced to the mixing bowl and toss the dressing and potatoes till they are all evenly coated. Before adding to your favourite servine bowl, taste. Add a touch more salt and pepper if needed.
When you have your favourite serving bowl topped off with your Vegan Summer Potato Salad, garnish with your pepitas, finely chopped herbs and dill sprigs! Invite everyone over for your next picnic and spread the #livelifehealthy love!
