Homemade Vegan Potato Salad

YUMMMMM!!!!! This is something my mom has made since I was a little kid. I use to pick all the veggies out but I still love it. It is one of those things that we never made in the winter time but as soon as summer rolls around we are always eating potato salad or macaroni salad. I have turned both into vegan versions (which is really not very difficult to do). I am sharing my version with you because I like the vegetables that go into it and I like the "secret" spices as well. It is a perfect side to many different dishes.

Makes: 2 servings
Cook time: 30-40 minutes

4 large red potatoes 
4 green onions
2 cloves garlic
1/4 yellow onion
1/4 red onion
1 stalk celery
1/2 red, orange, or yellow pepper
3-4 tablespoons veganise mayo
garlic salt
steak seasoning

1. Cut your potatoes into medium square leaving the skin on. Place in a medium pot with water. The water should be about an inch above the potatoes. Slice your garlic as thing as possible and place in water. Cut your green onions and place in pot as well. Bring water to a boil and then turn down to medium heat. Cook them until the potatoes are soft. It will probably take anywhere from 20-30 minutes. You can check them by removing one and when you can cut it in half with no problems they are done. Drain and place all ingredients back in pot. Let cool for at least 5 minutes. They should no longer be steaming.

2. Slice your celery, pepper and onions into VERY small pieces. Once potatoes are cooled place chopped vegetables in with potatoes. Add your veganise mayo and spices to taste. Mix until potatoes are evenly coated with the mayo. You can add as much of the spices and mayo as you would like. 

3. Serve warm or place in fridge and serve later on. :)
