Steps

Step 1: Preparing the Potatoes and Celery

• 4 cups baby potatoes, steamed or boiled until tender and cooled
• 1/2 cup celery branches, thinly sliced

Method

In a mixing bowl, combine the potatoes and celery and set aside.

Step 2: Preparing the Aioli

• 1/2 cup Cashew Sour Cream*
• 3 tbsp capers, chopped
• 2 tbsp red onion or shallot, minced
• 1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
• 1 1/2 tbsp of liquid sweetener
• 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
• 1 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
• 1 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Method

To start, first prepare the Cashew Sour Cream. Alternatively, a non-dairy mayonnaise can be used instead.

To prepare the aioli, in small bowl, whisk all the ingredients well. Pour the aioli over the potatoes and celery and combine thoroughly to coat.

Serve the salad as a side dish or atop butter lettuce for a filling lunch.

Chef's Notes

Serve these potatoes as a side or as part of a picnic, or top with greens, such as watercress. The spiciness from the watercress is a nice balance to the richness of the dressing.

    I made this dish for a big family party. I used the cashew cream sauce option, and doubled the entire recipe. Not many people believed it was dairy-free, and kids just loved it too! So yummy!

    Yum! I almost changed this recipe because I was worried about all the different flavours and how they’d work together. I decided to be openminded and left it as is. It’s really tasty!

    The taragon really adds a fabulous note to this dish. It has quickly become a favorite of mine. I've made it several times with vegan mayo, but I will try the cashew cream next.

    What liquid sweetener do you suggest?

    Hi Maria and thanks for your question. So for a liquid sweetener you can use a variety of syrups or honey. Syrups such as almond syrup are nice. Honestly, I love using honey for this recipe! I hope this helps! Thanks so much for cooking with Rouxbe! Chef Kirk

    If I serve it the following day, should I keep the aioli separate until the day I serve it and pour over the potatoes then?

    Robin, it is best to dress the salad just prior to service for the freshest look and feel. If dressed very early, the dressing may have a chance to dry a bit and thicken, and adjusting the consistency is a little more work when working around the potatoes.
