Creamy Horseradish Potato Salad w/ Pickled Shallots & Dill | Vegan

Creamy Horseradish Potato Salad w/ Pickled Shallots & Dill | Vegan | Vegan Food | Scoop.it


if there were ever a kind of food i could just eat, and eat, and eat, i
would say that california fare would be my everyday go-to.  it almost seems
like you can taste the difference in the food that restaurants prepare, as
if their ingredients haven't been flown in from thousands of miles away,
but grown only a few miles from where their destination would end up being.
 i feel like there's a natural ease to the way dishes are made -  a
simplicity that's complex, but uncomplicated. 

during my last trip there a couple of months ago i scored reservations at
gjelina.  after purchasing their cookbook months prior, all i wanted to do
was go there and eat from their menu!  and since my sister-in-law and i
were both pregnant, it was the perfect time to indulge in some perfectly
made veg-centric appetizers and some bites of their insanely delicious
pizza.  we started off with a few salad apps: summer squash with za'atar
and tomatoes, roasted yams with yogurt and scallions, and my fave - a
horseradish potato salad with pickled red onions that was off the chain!  

you may have noticed that i have a thing for potato salad (seen here and
here), but there's a very specific potato salad that really makes my
tastebuds grin, and that's a mildly creamy, kinda tangy, and crunchy potato
salad.  this time around i riffed gjelina's version and made an everyday,
vegan version made with cultured coconut yogurt flavored with a pungent
kick of horseradish, some good dijon and dill.  and paired with pickled
shallots for some mega crunch and sharp flavor.  it comes close to one my
mom used to prepare in the summer months which had a similarly acidic
undertone using mayo, dijon, vinegar, and red onion, but i would say this
version here is even better - that horseradish and those crunchy shallots
are just too good!  

this is the kind of food (pregnant or not) that i crave on the regular -
especially during the warm summer months when we're bbq'n, packing up for a
beach day, or bringing dishes to friends or family get togethers.  these
simple, uncomplicated summer dishes are what i look so forward to! i hope
you do as well :)

xo's! 

*oh!  and don't forget to stop by every friday for my new summer blog
series: summer fridays! this week i'm going to be sharing my go-to fancy
(but not really fancy) mocktail that i've been surviving on in lieu of
popping bottles of rosé.  but for those of you who are not growing a tiny
human, the recipe is totally adaptable for making it good and boozy ;)   



creamy horseradish potato salad w/ pickled shallots & dill | v

adapted from gjelina: cooking from venice california

the pickled shallots can be replaced by thinly shaved shallots or red
onion, but if you have the ingredients and time, i think the pickling is
well worth it.

| serves 4 |

* 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes, cut in half
* fine sea salt

pickled shallots

* 2 cups filtered water
* 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
* 1 tablespoon cane sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
* 1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
* 1 bay leaf
* 4-5 shallots, sliced thin 
* 3 thyme sprigs

horseradish sauce

* 1/2 cup unsweetened cultured coconut yogurt
* 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
* 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
* 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
* fine sea salt & fresh pepper


method
1. place potatoes and a few pinches of salt in a pot and cover with
about 1-inch of water.  bring to a boil, cover and turn heat to
low, simmer for 12-15 minutes, until potatoes are firm but tender.
 drain potatoes and rinse under cold water to stop them from cooking.
 spread them out on a dish towel and allow them to cool and dry.
2.  make the pickled shallots. combine the water,vinegar, sugar, salt,
peppercorns, and bay leaf in a small pot. bring to a boil, then lower
heat and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes.
3. while the vinegar mixture is simmering, place the shallots and thyme
in a large heat-proof glass jar (like a Ball jar), then pour the
brine over top and let it sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour
before using, or up to 1 month in the fridge.
4. make the sauce.  whisk together the yogurt, dill, mustard,
horseradish, and salt and pepper to taste.  
5. in a large bowl, combine the potatoes, sauce, and about 1/4 cup of
pickled shallots.  toss to coat evenly.  garnish with extra dill
and/or nasturtium leaves.
