This potato salad is absolutely delicious, especially if you're not a fan of traditional potato salad loaded with mayonnaise. Red potatoes provide vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, iron, and dietary fiber. Eaten with their skins on, they are even higher in fiber.
I found this recipe from Paula Deen and was surprised to see a lighter recipe from her, but the ratings were 5 stars so I figured it had to be good! I modified it a bit further reduce the points, but you would never know. This potato salad is a keeper and got lots of kudos at my Father's Day luncheon.
