  1. Yum!
    I veganized this easily by substituting in a vegan mayo made with grapeseed oil. And I added in kernels shaved off a couple freshly cooked cobs of corn for some added sweetness and crunch, and used purple, yellow and red potatoes for more color. It was fantastic, and not at all heavy. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it.
