Vegan Potato Salad Recipe

While I was preparing food for my Puppy Bowl Party, I thought it would be fun to share my potato salad recipe (for humans) on the blog.   And since I have an amazing sister/photographer, I asked Alice to take some photos of it.

Alice has been a vegetarian all of her adult life and became a vegan about four years ago.  I’ve seen the benefits of her plant-based diet, and I absolutely love everything she cooks.  So I decided to try my hand at making a vegan potato salad.

It is so tasty, and I was surprised to discover that I didn’t miss the hard boiled eggs at all.

First, wash and scrub all vegetables.

Cut potatoes into desired size and then add to a pot of water (salt optional.)  Boil until soft, but not mushy.   Drain.

In the meantime, chop radishes, scallions, dill, and celery.

Don’t you just love dill?  The texture, the taste, the fact that is a favorite food for Black Swallowtail caterpillars?  I grew some last summer but needed more.  (The dill pictured is from the grocery store, not homegrown.)

Place cooked potatoes in a mixing bowl.  Then, add vegetables and dill.

This potato salad is delicious right after you mix it together, but I think it is even better the next day!
