Earth Day is April 22nd. Picnic Day is April 23rd. So, I created this refreshing and super scrumptious twist on potato salad to celebrate both days al fresco.

I was fortunate to host an amazing dietetic intern (Karsyn Tall) this spring. As part of her internship experience, I asked her to create a seasonal Meatless Monday-friendly recipe.

Seriously, it tastes way, way, way better than I’m making this sound. I just always look for ways to prevent food waste. Often it results in interesting fixes like this. Try it! It’s Meatless Monday and Earth Month friendly! It’s vegan! And it’s super tasty! Calories Saved: 177 Why it’s better for you? Fiber! Plenty of it!
