Tempeh & New Potato Salad

This salad can be served warm or cold, on its own or over a lettuce-based salad.  I used a combination of purple, red, and yellow potatoes because that's what I have in my garden, but any color will work.

The Ingredients:
about 5 c small new potatoes
1 package tempeh
3 T fruity balsamic vinegar (I used tangerine/fig balsamic)
2 T olive oil
1 T + 2 t mustard
1 T agave
leaves from a 2-3 inch sprig of rosemary, minced
1/8 t salt
a pinch black pepper

The Process:

  1. Fill a large saucepan or small stockpot with enough water to cover potatoes and tempeh.  Bring to a boil, add potatoes & tempeh, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.  Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, to make dressing, combine all remaining ingredients in a mason jar.  Put the lid on the jar and shake vigorously until well-combined.
  3. Combine potatoes and tempeh with dressing.  For the best flavor, refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
