I recently bought a bunch of fresh dill and was excited to try my hand at potato salad. My normal experience is to just throw some boiled potatoes with veganaise and dried dill together. It’s tasty, but a little boring. I wanted to change it up and add some more veggies to this salad and maybe even some grains!
Isn’t it beautiful? I took my favourite parts of traditional potato salad and added some fun, new twists. Sadly… I totally forgot to add the quinoa I had set aside for it for some added protein. I would highly suggest adding some freshly cooked quinoa to this – I think it would be delicious! I served this up with some grilled tempeh for a perfect meal =)
Revamped Potato Salad (serves 4)
6 small red potatoes, rinsed & chopped into bite-sized pieces
3/4 cup of peas
1 red pepper, diced
1/4 cup of fresh dill, chopped (or 2 tbsp dried)
3 stalks of celery, diced
several handfulls of greens
1/4 cup of vegan mayonnaise (I have made my own in the past, but was low on time this night)
Toss all ingredients together. This works great as a main or a side.
