It’s your favorite summer cookout staple with a vegan twist! Cashews are blended into a creamy dressing and tossed with tender red potatoes and a medley of vegetables, like carrots, zucchini, and red onion for added crunch and color. Top it off with fresh dill and parsley and crunchy “bacon” made from roasted mushrooms for a savory finish..

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Make the mushroom bacon: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms with the olive oil, maple syrup, soy sauce, salt, black pepper, and smoked paprika until well coated. Spread the mushrooms in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the mushrooms for 35–40 minutes until darkened and most of the moisture has been cooked out. Increase the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and bake for 10–12 minutes more, until the mushrooms are dried out, but still flexible.
  4. Make the potato salad: Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water. Generously season the water with salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, 12–15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and transfer to a large bowl.
  5. Make the dressing: In a high-powered blender combine the drained cashews, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt. Blend on high speed until coarsely chopped, then add ¼ cup cold water and continue blending until completely smooth, adding more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary.
  6. While the potatoes are still somewhat warm, toss with ⅓ of the cashew dressing until well coated. Let sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly, then fold in the red onion, half of the mushroom bacon, the chopped vegetables, parsley, dill, and another ⅓ of the dressing.
  7. Just before serving, toss with the remaining dressing and garnish with the remaining mushroom bacon, dill, and parsley.
  8. Enjoy!
