🌿 Ingredients and Substitutes
Potatoes: The main ingredient in the roasted potato salad, providing a hearty and filling base. I love to use Yukon gold potatoes, but any potato will work—red, Russett, you name it! I like the texture that keeping the skins on provides, but if you prefer your potatoes peeled, go for it.
Cucumber: Adds a refreshing crunch and coolness to the salad. Can be substituted with radishes for a similar effect.
Green onion: Provides a mild onion flavor and adds a vibrant touch. Substitutes like chives or shallots can be used.
Fresh herbs: Parsley and dill enhance the overall taste and aroma of the salad. Other herbs like cilantro, thyme, or oregano can be used depending on personal preference and availability.
Pistachios: Offer a delightful nutty crunch and richness to the salad. Other nuts like almonds or walnuts can be substituted.
Mayonnaise: Creates a creamy and tangy dressing for the salad. You can use vegan mayo (I do, as I actually prefer it!). Greek yogurt or sour cream can be used as healthier alternatives as well.
Mustard: Adds a tangy and slightly spicy flavor to the dressing. I like to use whole-grain brown mustard but feel free to swap it out for Dijon or any mustard you prefer.
Garlic: Infuses a pungent and savory taste into the salad. Garlic powder or minced shallots can be used if fresh garlic is not available.
Lemon juice: Provides a bright and citrusy acidity that balances the flavors. Substitutes like white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar can be used.
Sweetener: Balances the acidity and adds a touch of sweetness to the dressing. Honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar work great in this recipe.
Salt and pepper: Essential for seasoning and enhancing the flavors of the salad. Adjust to taste if needed.
Red pepper flakes: This optional ingredient adds a subtle spicy kick to the salad.
