Hey guys!! I’m back with another recipe. I know, I know…Nikki where have you been, girl???? SMH. I’ve just been busy with life! I’m so sorry it’s taken me this long to publish another post. Forgive me?
I’m sure you will after you try this new recipe I have for you !!!! At least I hope you do…
This is my take on potato salad. And everyone who has been within ear shot of me these days knows that I LOVE Just Mayo. It is dairy-free, and egg-free “mayonnaise”. And trust me when I say it tastes just like the real thing. Seriously. I saw on Facebook that the company, Hampton Creek, also has a new dairy-free, egg-free cookie dough coming out soon. Yay!!! Can’t wait for that !! But until then, I’ll just enjoy being able to make potato salad again. And now egg-free, so it’s safe for my kiddo. Who, by the way, had a blast at a Halloween party this weekend hosted by our Food Allergy support group, NCFaces. Guess who he went dressed as…….Captain America! Ooooooooohh !!! he was soooo cute, and scrumptious !! I could just eat him up !! LOL
But, truly, you will eat up this potato salad, and I hope with the Holidays coming up, that’s exactly what you’ll do. I know it will be on my holiday menu this year!
Potato Salad w/ egg-free mayo-serves about 6-8
- boiled and diced potatoes (I cut up about 8 small Yukon golds)
- 1 cup of Just Mayo
- 3 tablespoons of yellow mustard (I use Annie’s)
- 1 stalk of celery, diced
- 1 tbsp. of finely diced onion (you could use more if you want a stronger onion flavor)
- 4 tbsp. sweet pickles (“relish” for Northerners)
- 1 tbsp. white sugar
- 1 tsp. black pepper
Here we go….
Let your boiled and diced potatoes cool. You could even stick them in the fridge for a little while to speed up the process. In a large bowl mix together the last 7 ingredients to make the “dressing” for your “salad”. If you notice, there is no salt in the recipe ingredients. That is because I salt my boiling water before I add the potatoes. Now, potatoes are different from pasta…in that, you can salt boiling water for pasta pretty generously and the pasta won’t be overly salty. But, try that with water for potatoes and your blood pressure may shoot up! No…but seriously… potatoes absorb salt very readily. So, be easy-handed with your salting.
Now, add your cooled potatoes to the mix, and gently stir it all together.
