Simple Vegan Picnic Potato Salad

You've heard about the book of poetry I've written inspired by my love for potatoes right? Well, ok, I haven't actually written it, but if I ever became a poet laureate, you could place all the blame on the potato.

It's hard for me to choose my favorite way to cook and eat potatoes. Let's face it, we've got roasted potatoes, French fries, braised potatoes, potato latkes, potato pancakes, hash browns, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes with vegan sour cream and onion... oh boy. They're all delicious! There is however, one that is near and dear to my heart and that is the potato salad.

Vegan Meal Ideas for Picnics and Potlucks

The first flowers officially bloomed in our home this past weekend and that means quite a few things at our house. First, we get to basically move to our terrace from now until October, our favorite part of the house. We also start grilling outside like maniacs. Lastly, it's time to dust off the picnic blankets and plan little excursions with the dogs and of course a delicious vegan picnic.

I've always been a fan of picnics because I love doing anything in a way it's not supposed to be done, a.k.a eating on the floor, and often times delicious goodies with your hands. I love planning the menu, packing it up, and nothing makes me more giddy than the crazy excitement my dogs get the minute they see our picnic bag. They immediately know what's coming even before the leashes come out. It was however when I met Carlos, my husband, and we moved to Spain, that my love of picnics grew exponentially.

Summer Picnic Fun Vlog!

I can't believe it's already August. This summer is just flying by, but I have to tell you I've been enjoying every second of it. We've been biking, swimming, hanging out by the pool, barbecuing in our terrace, and yes, we've been eating a lot of awesome food.

Three new vegan restaurants opened up on the same week over the summer, so we've been on a vegan culinary tour of the city every weekend.

One of the highlights of our summer thus far however has been a mini road trip we took to one of my favorite spots in Madrid. A beautiful reservoir where you can go for the day, swim, have a picnic, take your dogs, and we did it all! It's the famous Pantano de San Juan (San Juan Reservoir) in the Alberche river, and quite frankly the closest thing we have to a beach since Madrid is smack in the center of Spain with the closest beach a minimum of about 3 or 4 hours away in every direction.
