Green Goddess Potato Salad

Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 15 minutes Chill: 2-4 hours

Serves:4-8

I saw a recipe for a simple green potato salad in a magazine a couple of months ago and the photo was so appealing that I decided to try something similar, without the mayonnaise and sour cream, of course. I made this with only potatoes, but if you like other vegetables in your potato salads, feel free to add chopped vegetables of your choice.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds red potatoes
  • Dressing:
  • 12.3 ounce package soft silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp miso
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Potatoes: Scrub the potatoes but do not peel. Cut into approximately 1 inch chunks. Place in a pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for about 12 minutes until just tender. Drain. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.

Dressing: Place the tofu and water in a blender jar and process briefly. Add the remaining ingredients and process until very smooth and green. Set aside.

Salad: Place the cooled potatoes in a large bowl. Add other chopped vegetables if you wish at this time. Pour 1 1/2 cups of the dressing over the potatoes and mix gently. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Hints: Reserve the remaining dressing for use later as a dip for raw veggies or a topping for salad greens.
