vegan big mac potato salad

Happy Father’s Day! We’re going to admit, we kinda forgot about this day when we were planning recipes. However once we realized, the recipe we planned for today kind of just made sense. Vegan Big Mac Potato Salad, if this isn’t a recipe made for Father’s Day, we don’t know what is. Dad’s are great. They’re funny, they’re supportive, and they’re always there for a late night phone call when your freaking out about some sort of home repair. So thanks dads for always being there. We thought because you are always so great you deserved some delicious vegan food. Delicious vegan comfort food is what everyone wants in life, right!?
