Easy healthy potato salad

One easy, healthy potato salad just in time for summer!

When you think of potato salad, you probably visualize a creamy, mayo-heavy salad, right? This Mediterranean-inspired potato salad defies the 1940s version by using heart-healthy ingredients that let the potatoes shine instead of being buried in mayonnaise. It also complements the potatoes with extra carrots, celery, green pepper, and cherry tomatoes to add color, flavor and lighten the calories. The calories and saturated fat are half that found in traditional potato salad. So light and fresh, it's actually safer to serve at picnics since no mayo or dairy are in the recipe. Move over, Grandma, an easy, healthy potato salad is in town!
