Red Potato Salad

Sunday, May 3, 2015

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am obsessed with potatoes. When I was little I would eat them raw, that's how much I love them. The classic potato salad recipe just spells comfort food, maybe it's the German in me. Being vegan of course we do not eat your traditional mayonnaise made with eggs. Instead I used Just Mayo an all plant based mayo which is heavenly, in fact Just Mayo is better than the traditional mayo. Just Mayo is tart and sweet all at the same time giving this salad an awesome plant based kick. 


3 tbsp of Just Mayo
2 tbsp of organic extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp of grainy Dijon mustard
Juice and pulp from one lemon
2 tbsp of white wine vinegar
6 medium to large red potatoes
4 stalks of celery, chopped 
2 green onions, chopped
3 tbsp of fresh parsley, chopped
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper


Wash and chop your raw potatoes into bite size chunks. Add your potatoes to a pot of boiling water with about 2 tablespoons of sea salt. let them boil until tender. Meanwhile in a large bowl add your Just Mayo, olive oil, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and vinegar. Whisk all of these ingredients until its almost fluffy. Then add the chopped celery, sliced green onion, and parsley. When the potatoes are done cooking drain and add them to the Just Mayo mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed. Then season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Refrigerate until the salad is cold and then serve. 

Enjoy and remember to always be mindful and eat with compassion!
