When it comes to lunch or dinner in the summer, nothing quite makes the meal complete like potato salad.
It's a nice cool side dish perfect for barbecues and picnics.
Yes, you can make a delicious potato salad that is vegan. It all comes down to no eggs or dairy.
The key to this dish is using vegan mayonnaise. You can find it at most grocery stores.
Not only is this potato salad awesome, the onions and celery in it make it healthy as well.
Diced pimentos are also a key ingredient. They are peppers that are high in vitamins A and C, and they also boost your immune system.
Give potato salad a try without the eggs once.
You won't be able to tell the difference.
Have a great summer and enjoy that vegan thing.
