Cashew Kissed Potato Salad

A simple, yet rich cashew sauce gives this potato salad its deliciously light coating and offers a pleasant diversity from the familiar mayo base. Fresh herbs and broccoli turn this summer salad into a winning side dish. Make it super creamy by increasing the cashew and water to 1 cup each.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. potatoes, with skin, cut into bite-size pieces
1 lb. yams, peeled, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, divided
1 large broccoli crown, cut into bite-size florets
1 large carrot, shredded
6 strips Lightlife Fakin' Bacon (optional)
½ cup finely minced fresh parsley
½ cup finely minced fresh mint leaves
¼ cup finely minced fresh basil leaves
1 ½ tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup water

Directions:

  1. Place the yams into separate 2 to 3-quart saucepans and cover the potatoes with water; cover the two pans and bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or just until fork tender; immediately drain the water from each pan and add 2 Tbs. of the apple cider vinegar to each pan; toss well to coat the potatoes, pour out the excess vinegar, and transfer both to a large bowl.
  2. Rinse one of the saucepans briefly, fill it 2/3 full with water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat; in batches, blanch the broccoli for 1 1/2 minutes or until just fork tender, but still firm; use a slotted spoon to remove the florets to a dish to cool; drain excess liquid and add the blanched broccoli to the bowl with the potatoes.
  3. Add the carrot, Fakin' Bacon, parsley, mint, basil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Combine the cashews and water in the blender and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy; add the cashew sauce to the potatoes and mix gently with a wooden spoon to coat all the ingredients; adjust seasonings if needed and enjoy immediately or chill and serve later.

Meat is OUT

Avoiding red and processed meats while increasing plant-based fiber-rich foods reduces colorectal cancer, researchers reveal. Last month, World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research (WCRF/AICR) released the most comprehensive report ever conducted on diet and colorectal cancer risk. The report found that processed meats—this includes bacon, hot dogs, and deli meats—have double the risk in comparison to red meat, and eating too much red and processed meat can be detrimental to gastrointestinal health.

The current recommendations from WCRF/AICR are to avoid processed meats and limit red meat intake. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. There is conclusive, convincing evidence that certain foods significantly increase the risk of developing this deadly disease. Building a diet around the new four food groups (legumes, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits) will assure plenty of fiber is consumed, greatly reducing colorectal cancer risk.
