Pasta salad with homemade vegan sour cream

I have made this homemade sunflower sour cream so many times in a couple of weeks and still couldn't get enough. I have discovered that you can make an absolutely wonderful salad with it. Be it potato or pasta salad, it suits just perfectly. I love that I don't have to buy the sauce anymore, I can make it myself. Real quick, cheap and healthy.

I like to keep my sour cream or mayo salads pretty simple. I don't like to add bell peppers or apples or fresh cucumbers. Instead, I almost always add just canned peas and chopped pickles. Works every time. This time I also added some chopped onions. You can always add chopped vegan sausages for example. Just yesterday I boiled potatoes and made white sausage sauce with vegan wieners. A pretty common dish in Estonia. And it was just like the meat version I ate a long-long time ago. Makes me wonder why all the sausages in the world aren't vegan yet :)
