One of my favorite summer time food is potato salad. Actually, I love potato salad all year round and this potato salad is vegan and dairy free. I used to put eggs and real mayo in my old recipe, but times have changed and so has this potato salad recipe!
Being able to enjoy foods that taste great are one of the reason I am able to be vegan and eat a whole food, plant-based diet! It’s not always easy, but having foods like this, that are great tasting, make it all worth it. This potato salad will not disappoint!
When I am peeling my potatoes, I always have a big bowl of cold water to put the freshly peeled potatoes in. That way they don’t start turning colors on me. Then I just pull one out at a time and cut them to the size I want.
If you haven’t tried this mayo before, you should give it a try. I am so glad to have a healthier alternative to regular mayonnaise.
