How to make potato salad?

First, put the nuts in the oven. To do this, place the nuts in a bowl and pour water over them so that all the nuts are covered. You can soak the nuts for a couple of hours up to overnight (or in hot water for 15 minutes). Then chop all the salad ingredients into small cubes and place in a large bowl. For the sauce, crush the nuts and add them to a blender with the lemon juice, garlic cloves, maple syrup, sea salt and water and blitz until smooth and silky. As a last step, mix the dressing into the chopped salad. Mix carefully and enjoy!

PS! The salad tastes great the next day. To do this, store the salad in an airtight container in the fridge.
