A plant-based, vegan and delicious take on summer potato salad.

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds red potatoes cut in quarters, skin on
  • 2¾ tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 10-ounce container roasted garlic or regular hummus

Directions

Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover just enough with water. Add 2 tablespoons of the salt. Bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes about 6 minutes until they are slightly tender with a knife, but not cooked through.

Meanwhile, make the dressing. Place the hummus in a small bowl. Add the olive oil and lemon juice. Whisk until creamy and smooth. Set aside.

Evenly spray the grate on a grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Pre-heat the grill or grill pan on medium-high heat.

Place the potatoes cut side down on the grate. Grill 4-5 minutes until grill marks appear. Using tongs, turn the potatoes over. Grill 4-5 more minutes until fully tender and lightly charred. Transfer from the grill/grill pan into a large mixing bowl. Let the potatoes cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

Season the potatoes with the remaining ¾ teaspoon of sea salt. Add the hummus dressing and mix until fully coated. Add the scallions and 1 cup of the arugula and fold gently to bring the salad together. Transfer to a serving platter. Scatter the remaining ½ cup of arugula over top.

Season with more salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and Enjoy!
