I know what you devils are thinking…Vegan Spring Potato Salad? It’s almost Winter, bitch! Well, no, I am in Australia (also known as the Upside Down of the world..ha ha, Stranger Things), where it is currently Spring and so I’m going to make a Spring Potato Salad, okay? Shoot me. I’ll probably enjoy it. I have posted a Herbed Potato Salad recipe in the past which everyone should try, but this time round, I’ve made this Spring Potato Salad recipe even healthier. Just because it’s the end of year festivities doesn’t mean we have a free pass to eat shit, got it?
My Vegan Spring Potato Salad recipe couldn’t get any simpler to make. First off, the main component – small round Salad/New Potatoes that are roasted in an oven till they are crispy and golden. Whilst your taters are blistering in the oven, you’ll blanche off some Asparagus, Green Peas and Edamame Pods. This takes about 5 minutes, so don’t bother doing it till your Potatoes have almost finished roasting. Yay, now it’s assembly time!
In a large bowl, you’ll combine your Roast Potatoes, Asparagus, Green Peas and Edamame. So green, so healthy, I feel so Zen right now. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I really don’t like single-colored food (because I am still a child), so I’ve decided to add some gorgeous sliced Pink Radish into the mix. After all, Pink and Green go really well together, hashtag fashion tip. Now, to dress, we have a simple dressing made up of Lemon Juice, White Wine Vinegar, Dijon Mustard, Olive Oil, a touch of Maple Syrup, Chopped Mint and Dill.
Once everything is combined, y0u’re rewarded with some healthy carby goodness that you don’t have to cry about eating once you’ve inhaled the entire bowl. I’m not saying you must inhale the entire bowl, but there is a high chance of it happening and I won’t be held accountable – disclaimer. So, you ready to kill some Potatoes?
