1 to 2 stalks celery, with leaves, chopped
1⁄2 cup sliced green and/or black olives (1/4 cup of each is nice!)

1 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning blend

INSTRUCTIONS:

Steam the potatoes until tender but still slightly firm, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool until slightly warm. Add the carrots, celery, and olives and stir gently until well combined.

Put the vegan mayonnaise, mustard, Italian seasoning, brown sugar, and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Add to the potato mixture and stir gently until well combined. Add the parsley, optional basil, and pepper to taste and stir gently until evenly distributed.

Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 12 hours. Check the consistency before serving; if the mixture seems dry, stir in a bit more vegan mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon at a time. Garnish with tomatoes and basil or parsley sprigs, if desired.
