We love potato salad, and could eat it all year round - and do! This is one of our favorites. A basic, yet full-flavored potato salad even your non-vegan friends and family will love!
8 - 10 cups cold water
4 cups russet potatoes, diced medium
1 cup celery, diced small
1 extra large kosher dill pickle, diced small
1/2 cup scallions, green parts only, sliced thin
5 strips Smart Bacon, diced small and cooked crisp
1/2 cup Follow Your Heart brand Vegenaise
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with the cold water. Simmer the potatoes until they are fork tender, but not too soft. Drain the potatoes in a colander, return to the saucepan, and dry out over medium heat for 1 to 3 minutes. Allow the potatoes to cool.
Place half of the potatoes into a large bowl, and rough mash with a potato masher. Add the remaining potatoes to the bowl along with the celery, pickle, onion and prepared Smart Bacon.
In a separate medium sized bowl combine the Vegenaise, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard and garlic powder. Stir until smooth. Pour over the potato mixture and gently mix with a spatula until well combined. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
