(WXYZ) — Putting a unique plant-based twist on a Fourth of July cookout favorite, with a new gourmet meal delivery service in Troy.

Chef Gabriel Vera from Aratham Gourmet to Go joined 7 Action News with vegan potato salad. The dish can last longer out of refrigeration since there is not mayonnaise or eggs in it.
