This is a beautifully colorful and crunchy salad. It takes a little time to chop all the veggies but the result is well worth the effort. Double the recipe if you plan to bring this to a potluck lunch or picnic. There never seems to be enough! Yum!

3 cups raw potatoes, peeled and diced fine

2 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup nuts of your choice, chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup coconut, grated
2 Tbsp fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
Sea salt to taste
2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
5 1/4 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp brown sugar or Sucanat(dehydrated cane juice)
- Mix the dressing ingredients in a screw top jar and shake well. Pour the dressing into a large bowl.
- Dice potatoes and toss well with the dressing. (This will keep the raw potatoes from turning brown.)
- Add the remaining ingredients and toss well.
