Fauxtato Salad

I came up with this idea when I made the Crab, Bacon and Parsnip Chowder.  Once I realized that parsnips could be substituted for potatoes, I thought I’d try a potato salad…so here goes!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 12 ounces uncured nitrate-free bacon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup paleonnaise

Directions

  1. Fill a medium pot about halfway with water and cubed parsnips.  Cook on medium-high until the parsnips are fork tender.  Drain.  Set aside.
  2. Cut bacon into small 1/4-inch squares.  Cook until crispy.  Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.  Set aside.
  3. Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate at least 1/2 hour or until ready to serve.
  4. Enjoy!

  1. Like dishes that are slightly different and interesting, will try!

  2. Wonderful idea. Could you maybe try celery root for this also? I love parsnips…going to give it a try.
