vegan minted potato salad

While potato salad is ubiquitous at both Grandma’s house and church potlucks, it is often off limits for vegans or health-conscious folks alike, being weighed down with a high-fat concoction of eggs and oil.

This alternative creates a salad whose flavor a home-cook can be proud of, and is light enough for those with high-cholesterol to consume it.

Vegan mayonnaise, often made from soy, is a healthy alternative to the traditional style and can be found at most grocery stores in the health food section.
