Light & Healthy Potato Salad

Vegan MoFo #18 – I saw these purple potatoes at the grocery store this week and couldn’t resist bringing some home with me. Look at that awesome color! I’m also going “low-carb” next week, and then 100% raw the following week, so I figured I’d go ahead and indulge in some big ol’ potatoes this week while there’s still time!

Purple Potatoes

I found a recipe for “New Potatoes with Mustard Dressing” in an advertisement for Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 blend a few years back. I’ve been making the recipe every summer since then – actually, a slightly modified version of it that is even healthier. It’s quick & easy, and a great way to get essential omega oils into your diet.

Unfortunately, the lovely color of the potatoes faded quite a bit from boiling them. Does anyone know how to better preserve the color next time? Would the color remain if I used them in a recipe that calls for baking, instead of boiling?

Anyway, here’s one of my favorite potato side-dish recipes… Enjoy!
