Day 7 of Salad a Day

Potato and Pea Salad

Potato salad seems to be a favourite for many people. It’s an easy salad to make ahead of time, it’s also easy to transport to picnics and to take to potlucks. The potato makes it a filling meal. My take on the traditional potato salad is to add some greens – in this case peas. And rather than the traditional parsley I use dill to freshen up the flavour. Keep the skins on the potato for even more nutrition. Just scrub them first and then chop into bite-sized pieces.

Feel free to add your favourite greens and herbs.

I’ve provided the recipe for a tofu dressing. I prefer to use this as I know exactly what ingredients are going into my dressing rather than a packaged product, but you could use a packaged vegan mayonnaise. I like Ceres Organics vegan mayo which is available from Aussie Health Products.
