Hearty Potato & Asparagus Salad

My family loved this fresh, zesty salad.  The mustard and vinegar are a perfect flavor pairing!

This potato salad really hit the spot for our weekday lunch.  If you are going to a picnic where you would usually bring a traditional potato salad with mayonnaise, try this version instead.  It’s meat, dairy, sugar, salt, and oil free, not to mention made with 100% whole, plant-based foods.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 Pound red skin potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1/2 Pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

2 Tablespoons brown rice vinegar

2 Tablespoons mustard

2 Cloves garlic, peeled and minced

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Bunch green onions (white and green parts) thinly sliced

2 Handfuls mixed salad greens

Steam the potatoes in a double boiler or steam basket for 15 minutes, or until tender, adding the asparagus during the last 3 minutes.

Tastes great--looks pretty too!

Combine the brown rice vinegar, mustard, garlic, and pepper in a large bowl and whisk well.  Add the warm potatoes, asparagus, and green onions.  Mix well.  Serve the potato salad over a bed of mixed greens warm, or chill for 1 hour and then serve.
