I’m a real sucker for Potato Salad. I mean, who is’t? In my pre-vegan days, I’d stuff my face silly with tub fulls of the stuff, and then spend the entire night feeling sick in bed. Thankfully, those days are long gone and I no longer have the tendency to binge on Potato Salad (there should be rehab for those addicted to Potato Salad, IMHO). With that said, I do still enjoy the occasional Potato Salad treat every now and then, so I’m glad that I have come up with my very own version of a Healthy Vegan Herbed Potato Salad.
The recipe for my Healthy Vegan Herbed Potato Salad utilizes both white and sweet potatoes to add an extra nutritional punch to the otherwise ordinary, everyday Potato Salad recipe. I personally love the touch of subtle yet creamy sweetness the Sweet Potato brings to the table as well. Wow, I sound like a fancy bitch. Anyway, onto the dressing in this recipe – I make a Mustard and Herb Dressing that comprises of Whole Grain Mustard, Dijon Mustard, Olive Oil, Garlic, Onion Powder, Maple Syrup, Lemon Juice, Fresh Parsley, Fresh Chives and just 1/2 a tablespoon of Vegan Mayonnaise.
Once your Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes are boiled and tender (I leave the skins on as they are loaded with nutrients and fiber), you throw the lot into your bowl of prepared Mustard and Herb Dressing. After a quick toss to coat and a little taste test to check for seasoning, you’ll be rewarded with a hearty and delicious Vegan Potato Salad that even Non-Vegans will love. Promise.
