  • Yield: 6 1x



  • 5 lb bag yellow or gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 5 oz shredded carrots
  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  2. While potatoes are cooling, in another bowl combine vegenaise, diced onion, vinegar, and carrots and mix. Add paprika, salt, and parsley flakes and mix to taste.
  3. Add vegenaise mixture to potatoes and serve or cover and refrigerate.
