Servings 8 servings


  • 1 pound red potatoes, rinsed, peeled, and cut into bite size cubes
  • 1 ¼ cup beets, rinsed, peeled, and cut into bite site cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cup cooked, small green lentils
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonaisse
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped kale


  1. Place potatoes and beets in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add enough cold water to completely cover vegetables, add salt, and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, reduce heat to a low simmer; do not cover. Cook vegetables approximately 25 minutes or until potatoes and beets are tender. Once done, place potatoes and beets in a strainer to drain water; run cold water over potatoes and beets until cooled.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cooled potatoes and beets, lentils, and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and ground pepper together. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the potato and beet mixture; combine well.
