Rosols (Latvian Potato Salad)

What you need: 

2 medium potatoes
1 pickled cucumber
1 carrot
1/3 of a long cucumber (fresh)
5 tablespoons canned green peas
5 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1/3 tablespoon oil
1/3 tablespoon vinegar
juice of 1/3 lemon
1/2 tablespoon mustard
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1/3 tablespoon horseradish
salt, pepper, sugar

What you do: 

In a bowl mix vegan mayonnaise, oil, vinegar, lemon juice, horseradish, mustard, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of water. Add finely chopped onion and garlic. Refrigerate for at least 40 minutes.
Cook peeled potatoes and carrots in water until done but not mushy.
Meanwhile cut all the veggies in small cubes (not bigger than twice of the pea size).
Mix all the chopped veggies, beans, cubed potatoes and carrot with dressing. Refrigerate and serve.
TIPS: you can add some cubed soy sausages for more close-to-the-real-thing flavour.
We make this salad for every occasion here in Latvia. Everyone loves it. It's originally made with sausage and eggs, but my friends can't really tell the difference! At times like these I'm proud to be vegan.

This is super good thanks! I saw the dressing for this one and knew it would be great and it was. I left out the cucumbers, horseradish, and lemon juice cause I was out and it still worked.


This is a good potato salad variation; the peas and cucumber are nice additions.
