  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled, cubed & steamed
  • 1/3 c Almond Milk PLUS 1 tbsp VINEGAR (to create a vegan buttermilk)
  • 1 tbsp Vegan Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 small Minced or Crushed Garlic Cloves OR you can use 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 cup Italian Parsley chopped
  • 2 Shallots peeled & minced


  • Create a vegan buttermilk simply by combining almond milk and vinegar.  Allow to sit.  It should look a bit curdled, but don't worry.  It will all whisk together in the end :)
  • Steam cubed sweet potatoes until just tender. DO NOT OVER COOK. Drain. Place on a tray in a single layer to cool.
  • Whisk together vegan buttermilk and remaining dressing ingredients. Gently toss with potatoes to combine. 
  • Garnish with some vegan bacon bits and/or parsley, if desired.
  • Chill before serving.
