It has a bunch of potato and chickpeas added to add a bunch of fiber, starch, and protein to fill your stomach and leave you satiated at the end of the meal. The dressing is what makes it though. The tahini and nutritional yeast both add a bit of creaminess and nuttiness to the dressing and the apple cider vinegar balances it out nicely with a bit of acid. And it seems to pair perfectly with the potatoes and chickpeas. Whole food plant based does not need to be boring or drab. You won't miss a thing eating this salad, it's inexpensive if you're on a budget, and you can make it for the whole family in a half hour or less.
