Delicious Quicky Potato Salad
I literally had one large potato starting to grow eyes staring at me from the hanging basket – I needed to use it soon! So today was the day! A few weeks back when I was on my scallion cream cheese kick, I planted a bunch of scallions in a pot so I could keep harvesting scallions as I needed them- not wanting to cut into a whole onion for my 1 potato salad salad, a cut the tops off from my potted scallions and was good to go. I had cut into a fresh lemon this morning and thought I could use that in place of vinegar for a bright fresh taste. The added nutrition of a Real Pickle fermented dill pickle to give the salad a bit more dimension, balanced with a hint of sweet makes this salad SUPER easy, super quick and super delicious….
1 large potato, peeled, steamed whole
(1c water, pinch salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and steam
partially covered for 10-15 minutes or just until tender)
2 scallions, minced
2T Real Pickles Dill Pickle (1 spear, minced)
1t maple syrup or agave
1/4c Veganaise or another prepared vegan mayonnaise
½ lemon, juiced
1/4t ground black pepper
Pinch smoked paprika
In a bowl, combine the dressing ingredients together; the scallions, minced pickle, sweetener, Veganaise, lemon juice, paprika, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust for seasonings, more sweet, saltier etc.
Slice the potatoes in 1” inch pieces into the bowl- I like my potato salad chunkier but slice how you like.
Mindfully mix the potatoes into the dressing, trying not to smash the potatoes. Adjust the seasoning before serving. Sprinkle with a bit more of the paprika.
Serve warm or chilled garnished with fresh scallion.
