I am a potato salad kind of girl. It is literally one of my favorite things. I love it as a side,
on bread, on a cracker, for any meal . . . and I love all types. I adapted this one from a recipe from my BFF’s mom, who was not vegan. Now, I enjoy it without the guilt, and it is a healthy pleasure. Eat it in a bowl on its own or as a side; it also makes great picnic food!
PREP + COOK TIME 30 MINUTES SERVES 4
11⁄2 pounds red-skinned potatoes
3⁄4 cup vegan mayo
2 tablespoons pickle juice 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 celery rib, diced
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1⁄4 cup black olives sliced 1⁄4 cup diced dill pickles (sweet or dill, your choice)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes, keeping the skin on. Add them to the boiling water and boil for about 15 minutes, until they are tender (check with a knife). Drain well and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
Mix the vegan mayo, pickle juice, dill, salt, and pepper in a large bowl with a whisk. Add the celery, onion, olives, and pickles; toss well. Add the chilled potatoes, and stir again. If you want it creamier, add more vegan mayo.
