Creamy Herb Potato Salad

Potato salad is always a favourite of many. This recipe doesn't contain mayo and eggs—but that doesn't mean it isn't delicious!
The dressing base is actually made of cashews! We've also paired it with tahini, dijon mustard as well as avocado oil. You won't be missing the creaminess of mayo in this dish!
The herbs used, along with lemon juice, make it super fresh and flavourful. You certainly won't miss the traditional type. Bon appétit!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs organic small red potatoes
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup water more may be needed
  • 1 ½ tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp Nuts To You Organic Sesame Tahini
  • ¼ tsp A. Vogel Herbamare
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp organic dill finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp organic parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp organic chives finely chopped

Instructions

  • Soak cashews overnight, or in boiling hot water for 2 hours.
  • Wash potatoes and cut in quarters and add to a saucepan of room temperature water. Once it boils, reduce the heat to medium, so the water is at a low boil and cook for 15 - 20 minutes (or until tender). A fork should slide easily through the potato, if it cracks it's overdone).
  • Drain the water and set potatoes aside to cool completely.
  • In the meantime, add soaked and drained cashews to a high-speed blender with water and blend until creamy, thick and pourable. If you don't get the desired consistency, add more water, one tablespoon at a time.
  • Then, add avocado oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, tahini, Herbamare and pepper andblend until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour mixture into a bowl and fold in dill, parsley and chives until fully combined.
  • Add potatoes and ensure that they're evenly coated.
  • You can serve it slightly warm, at room temperature or refrigerate for 4 hours (or overnight) and serve chilled. Enjoy!
