Our lightened up version of hearty potato salad is full of flavor and texture–you’ll never miss the extra fat and calories. This is your go-to summer side!
The Backstory: Did you know that everyone’s favorite summer side dish is often loaded down with spoonfuls of sugar (yes, sugar!) gobs of oil, full-fat mayonnaise and other high-fat, unhealthy ingredients? Who can even taste the potatoes when they’re buried in so many other things? My recipe for Hearty Potato Salad lets you enjoy the creaminess that makes potato salad so delicious, without the extra fat or sugar. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
Hearty Potato Salad - Healthy Option
