Classic potato salad with a tangy cream sauce, loaded with fresh herbs and finely chopped fresh vegetables. Only, there are no potatoes in this potato salad!
Because potatoes spike blood sugar (which increases the likelihood of sugar cravings after consumption), I chose to make this potato salad with…
I was a bit skeptical at first… but wow, cooked rutabaga was made for potato salad. It has the same consistency of potatoes but they’ve got a slight KICK that adds just the right amount of pizazz to the salad to totally pull it off.
Not to mention, it’s filling.
I find when I eat potatoes, I’m hungry about an hour afterward. Again, this goes back to the increase in blood sugar.
This rutabaga version doesn’t do that.
It’s healthy, simple and just plain good.
The dressing will be thick (which is perfect!)
Mix it around, chill, and devour!
Today’s recipe is perfect as a recipe during Wind Down Day 3 of my book. When you’ve finished a juice cleanse it is important to re-introduce food slowly.
