I think I am pretty creative when it comes to pimping regular recipes up. I wanted to create ad potato salad that has different flavors than the usual ones and that also has no mayo in it.
The muhammara paste together with the potatoes and all those nice flavors from the spices and sprouts, makes it easy for me to crave this salad every other week.
If you cannot find any broccoli sprouts, you can go with any other sprouts I believe.
This salad can be eaten as a main or as a side dish.
