Baby Red Potato Salad

I love a good homemade potato salad, and this one is absolutely delicious, especially if you’re not a fan of traditional potato salad loaded with mayonnaise. It uses just one tablespoon of mayo but still has plenty of sauce from the Dijon mustard, olive oil, and red wine vinegar. And since it uses red potatoes, no need to peel the potatoes so it’s quicker too! For more lighter potato salad recipes, try this Rainbow Potato Salad and Summer Potato Salad with Apples.

Baby Red Potato Salad

This healthy red potato salad is my favorite way to enjoy potato salad. Red potatoes provide vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, iron, and dietary fiber. They are even higher in fiber when eaten with the skins on.

Should I cut potatoes before boiling for potato salad?

Yes, I like to cut my potatoes into pieces that are the same size so that they cook quicker and more evenly.

How to make baby red potato salad

Potato salad is super simple to make. While your potatoes are boiling, prep and mix together all of the other ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Veggies: Baby red potatoes, green bell peppers, red onion, scallions
  • Sauce: Dijon mustard, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper

What to Serve with Potato Salad

This red potato salad is perfect for bringing to a picnic or BBQ. You can make it the night before, so it’s ready to go. It would be great served with burgers, grilled chicken, or sandwiches.


  • If you can’t find baby red potatoes, use regular red or gold potatoes.
  • Sub the green bell pepper with another color pepper or add celery.
  • Swap the red onion for shallots.
  • Add fresh dill to this potato salad.

  1. I made this exactly as written.   It is very good – a nice change from mayonnaise heavy potato salad.   My green onions were very large with multiple stems, so I only used one.

  2. maybe better the second day. Generally a little mild. I will try a few additions. On all levels I always try to follow recipes verbatim on the first go-round. Not sure what I could have gone wrong. Thought it was super easy and very attractive.

  3. So quick and yummy…and even better with a bit of dill on top 😉

  4. I made this tonight to go with my smoked chicken. It was delish! I think that it will be even better after marinating in the sauce overnight. I’ll definitely use this recipe and bring this dish to any evenr because it will for sure be a hit.

  5. Made this for the 4th of July and it was delicious! It just got better the longer it sat. I didn’t think that there would be enough dressing but their totally was. Definitely a keeper. I may sub in dill pickle for the bell pepper next time to give it a sharper, vinegary flavor profile.

  6. Served the salad for 4th of July. Instant hit with a request to make it for our. family beach week. Easy & delicious.

  7. Lots of flavor and my husband was thrilled it wasn’t drenched in a dressing. Will use this as a go-to recipe! Thanks!

  8. Ooo .. this looks wonderful, but how much MORE wonderful it would be if you could give us the weight of the potatoes you intend us to coat with the sauce … I don’t know if you mean 4 c. of potatoes whole little potatoes, or 4 c. of potatoes that have been cut into pieces … the latter clarification would result in about 5c. of potatoes if they were whole. So my efforts resulted in a very “dry” potato salad … I won’t rate this pending your explanation. Thanks!

  9. I have been making a red potato salad for 40 years. I boil the smallest red potatoes I can find but leave them whole. Then after they are tender and cooled slightly, I slice them and layer them in a 9×12 baking dish with a layer of thinly sliced radishes and green onions. Then cover with Ranch dressing and gently stir. Let sit in fridge for several hours or overnight, gently stirring before serving. No mayo or mustard at all. Salt to taste. 

    • Just curious why you would comment on a recipe with your own recipe???  Seems very odd and perhaps you should have a go at your own food blog? 

    • Amazing recipe!  I love the change up of the potatoes being red and a little firm. The dressing is perfect!  I did add dill and sweet pickles and celery to the salad. . (Had to keep a little tradition going). I’m so thankful for your recipes Gina!  Delicious, light, and outside the box. 

  10. Made this potato salad this morning: had Yukon Gold Potatoes on hand so I used them; added a generous soup spoon of non-fat plain Greek yogurt to the mayo, mustard, and red wine vinegar for a more creamy texture. Delicious!

  11. Very good, I added some capers and fresh parsley. I did overcook the potatoes a bit so just check them early

  12. Will be trying this. Probably could add some hard boiled eggs ?

  13. What great timing! I was looking for a side dish to serve tonight alongside chili and your recipe popped up. I have all the ingredients – it’s kismet!

  14. Is this dressing good for cole slaw

  15. I LOVE this recipe!  It’s the best😀

  16. Loved this… I know I am not supposed to change a recipe… But I did just a tad bit!  
    Lite Miracle Whip – 4 T.    Doubled oil and vinegar.   Added celery seed – 1 t.    Diced up three sweet pickles.  Just too dry as written. 
    A keeper!

  17. Made this tonight with no mayo (just a preference, my husband and I hate it) and champagne vinegar because it’s all I had on hand + fresh thyme and rosemary and it was awesome. No need for a mayo substitute but I’m sure yogurt would be nice, telling you though you won’t miss it!  Will be a staple for sure. Thanks Gina! another win 

  18. This is THE BEST potato salad EVER! I can’t stand all those one color heavy on the mayo ones with over cooked potatoes.. In fact this is the only one my hubby will eat. I sub the green pepper with a mixture of red and yellow, I also throw raw broccoli in if I have any. It looks so vibrant and is super yummy. Thank you Gina, another Skinnytaste hit 😁

  20. This was so good! I subbed plain yogurt for the mayo and doubled the dressing. This will be my new “go to” potato salad. 

  21. I hate potato salad that’s coated in mayonnaise. This was absolutely perfect! I was hesitant because there isn’t much liquid, but it works!

  22. Yummy. Easy. Guilt-free. Can still serve cole slaw and not feel overwhelmed by too much mayo/creamy taste. Highly recommend,
    Suggest using a capital T for tablespoon since ingredients are not in descending order according to amount. 

  23. Totally worth 3 Freestyle points, easy and delish.   I also added celery seed because I love the flavour in 
    Potato Salad. 

  24. Hi, Instead of using baby red potatoes, can I use baby gold potatoes for this recipe?

  25. I made this for my Memorial Day cookout because it was simple and low in calories. My hubby and I didn’t want to go over our calorie goals and he doesn’t like a lot of mayo. I thought it was fantastic; though my Nana exclaimed, “Kelly! Didn’t you put anything in this!?” She sounded pretty annoyed, and there were rumors she had put mayo in hers. Haha. 

  26. Awesome.  I love that mayo is not the first taste.  This is what potato salad should be.  I made the recipe as described and this is my one and only potato salad going forward..  A family favorite, perfect light side for those picky eaters in the house.

  27. This is now the only potato salad my family wants to eat!

  28. it was ok but regular potato salad is better, i question whether it has alot less calories than mayonnaise salad since oil and mayonnaise have the same calories. i would not serve this to company. it doesn’t look that great. i overcooked the potatoes so the skin actually looked brown (my fault). i think i would take the skin off next time.

    • Not only is most of the fiber content in the skins, but also the potassium- a good thing to have in a hot weather side.

  29. I have a person in my family allergic to red onions, recommendation on a substitution? Thanks!

  32. This is really outstanding! Be sure to leave plenty of time for the potatoes to cool.

    I doubled the recipe and added finely chopped jalapeno and a little fresh garlic. Next time I’m going to try plain yogurt in place of the mayo.

    Also, I like the taters a bit smaller than in the pic, and a little al dente. When you add cold potatoes to boiling water, it takes a couple minutes to come back to a boil. I found about 13 minutes from the time you add them is perfect.

  34. QUESTION – do ypu boil the potatoes whole and then cut them up or boil them cut??  I really want to make this but since baby reds are so small did not want to make mistake and have it not turn out fabulous!!!!!

  36. I made the baby red potato salad to go with hamburgers and corn on the cob. At first, I was a little nervous trying a different potato salad (usually use a mayo based, southern style salad) but this was so easy and I didn’t spend all day chopping and testing for doneness on the potatoes. I served it to my husband and he turned and said this was the absolute best potato salad I have made in years. This is now the only one I will ever make. Thank you so much for posting this.

  37. A new go to for summer picnics!  I made this the other night for the family and they LOVED it!  I had just enough for leftovers for lunch the following day.  My husband doesn’t eat mayo, so I used a little light sour cream and plain yogurt as the dressing.  

  38. I made this today to go with a smoked brisket! Omg. So good! Thank you Gina for all of your delicious recipes!

  39. this is the most amazing website my husband just found out he is diabetic I thought I was really well with meals but this website has given me so many new ideas amazing love it

    • I love dill in potato salad. Has anyone tried adding dill? Was it good? How much dill did you use? (Fresh or dried dill?)

  40. Made this tonight with your "Garlic Lover's Roast," and of course my family of 7 loved every bite of each dish! The only thing I added was a little cayenne because I like it hot. I loooved this potato salad though. I'm not a fan of the mayo heavy potato salad, this was perfect!

  41. Made this tonight added some for spices and omitted the green pepper and red onion because I didn't have it but this was VERY tasty! Would definitely make again and it was really creamy even though it had very little mayo in it!

  42. I added a tsp of honey and a few sprinkles of paprika… oh my gosh! Delish!

  43. I added grilled chicken, yellow bells, and orange bells to this. SO GOOD! Thanks so much for sharing!

  44. my husband inhales this!

  45. Very delicious! Serving with your stuffed buffalo chicken for dinner tonight 🙂

  46. So good! I swapped the green pepper for celery since that's what I had, very good.

  47. I am so sorry excited to make this for my husbands surprise BBQ/party on Thursday I can hardly stand it. I have been using your recipes for 4 months now and have lost over 20 pounds the best part is my husband can't even tell their diet recipes they're just so good!

  48. It was delicious. My husband couldn't stop eating it. The only change I made was to add some fresh dill because I love dill in my potato salad. Otherwise, it was perfect as is. Thank you!

  49. This look great, but for the bell pepper can't eat any of the bell family. What would you suggest for another raw pepper that I can use?

  50. I tried this but added another half amount of ingredients and two hard boiled eggs. DELICIOUS! My hubby had some and loved it! I told him not bad for low fat as I was gobbling it down and he said I think it only counts as low fat if you don't eat it all in one sitting haha but it was so good!

  51. I loved it, hubby prefers the mayo style. Add lots of salt, for the best flavor. I salted the water, and salted the wet ingredients, but had to add salt 2 more times. I thought it was perfect though! May add some hard-boiled egg next time.

  52. I have been making this potato salad all summer. Since on WW I stayed away from potato salads, but found this version and honestly have to say that my entire family enjoys it more than the recipe that calls for all the mayo. Thank you. Try this version, you wont be disappointed.

  53. So Yummy! Hubby loves it too. So light and refreshing. best potato salad ever!

  54. Just made it and it tastes delicious. I bet it will be even better when it sits for a couple hours until dinner time. My mayo was expired so I used sour cream, and I might stir in some chopped parsley just becausevi have so much. Thanks for a new favorite.

  55. I love your recipes..So grateful to find so many options that really taste good and everyone can enjoy without feeling deprived while striving to fight and win
    the battle of the bulge… 🙂

  56. In response to the post that the WW points do not seem to compute, I am currently on WW and use E-Tools. I went on the WW Site and using the points calculator on track your food page, this potato salad checked out right on point. It is 3 points per serving. I used the following numbers. 3 fat, 18 carbs, 2 fiber and 2 protein and it computed out to 3 points plus per serving. I checked other recipes also, I think it was the Bangin Good Grilled Shrimp and the Eggplant Parm and those computed out to the same amount of points Plus also. I think your recipes are WW points plus accurate at least from my calculations on the WW website.

    • Yes, I am really careful to avoid mistakes, although it happens from time to time, but they are usually caught right away from you lovely fans!

  57. I love this recipe. It is light, great for summer, easy and low in calories!! I really am glad I stumbled on your site! You rock!!

  58. This was delicious! I actually doubled the "sauce" part of the recipe. Used low fat mayo.

  59. DARN! I want to make this, but don't have hardly any of the ingredients! This looks yummy…

  60. I have made this twice so far. It is delicious!!!

  61. Made this and substituted reduced fat sour cream for the mayo. Served it warm and it was delicious!

  62. My husband and I just had this for dinner and we both loved it. Thanks so much for the recipe! It was really simple and quick to make, without a lot of ingredients. Perfect! 🙂

  63. Hello, just found this site. I love it so far. I make potato salad with mustard, very little mayo. Have you ever made it that way?

  64. I made this and it was wonderful! Very easy, and still very tasty for being so much lighter than the traditional deli potato salad. I liked the ratio of potatoes to sauce; they were well-covered without totally swimming in it, so I would definitely suggest sticking to the measurements. It was a great side for a grilling out night.

  65. This potato salad was delicious!!! I used a bag of baby red, purple and gold potatoes which added even more color to the salad. Next time I think I will do the greek yogurt which was suggested in previous posts because my husband and I are greek yogurt fanatics.

  66. I made this over the weekend and it was delish! I will use this recipe from now on! Thank you Gina!

  67. I saw this on Pinterest and made it tonight….YUM!! You are the best!

  68. My children are allergic to eggs. Subbed in greek yogurt and this salad was great. I have found using kosher salt, really helps season potatoes.

  69. I made this two days ago and it did not last, so am making another batch as I type this. I left out the mayo and it was still good! YUM!!!

  70. Trying this for our 4th of July bbq tonight…it looks delicious!! We are always looking for healthier versions of our favorite foods and we use a lot of your amazing recipes!

  71. I just made this for our July 4th BBQ and it is soooooooooooooo good!!!

  72. Made this for the 4th today!!! Oh my gosh! Fantastic!!! Perfect! I love a lighter potato salad with lots of zing and zest! 🙂 Thank you!

  73. Made this for 4th of July picnic. It made enough for 6-7 people to have 1 scoop. If you have a big event, you might want to double the recipe. I'm from the south and we're used to a creamy potato salad, but everyone said it tasted good. I added a tbsp of honey mustard b/c I don't like the taste of dijon. I did make the "dressing" and then leave it in the cooler for about 6 hours and it smelled wonderful when I took it out (much better than when I made it). I'll make this again for my family.

  74. Made this last night (my first skinnytaste recipe) and it was great! So light and flavorful. We had it with grilled pork chops cooked in dijon. Thanks!

  75. I would like to make this with veganaisse. Does anyone know if it will turn out good? My daughter is vegan. I realize it will change the nutritional information.

  76. Delicious Recipe! My hubby is skeptical about healthy recipes but he absolutely loved this recipe … he even asked for seconds 🙂 Thank you Gina!!

  77. add some fresh garlic and cilantro for a kick!

  78. I was skeptical, but this was delicious and was a huge hit at the BBQ I took it too! Thanks so much!!

  79. Great potato salad!! I don't like mayo so used a little 0% greek yogurt instead and it turned out really well. Big hit with my hubby!

  80. Another winner! I made this for Memorial Day also and everyone loved it! My husband asked me if I could make it again tonight. Thanks Gina!!

  81. Made this for Memorial Day and it was a big hit. How great to be able to eat potato salad while following Weight Watchers! I didn't change a thing but might try adding some dill just to change it up a bit next time (although it certainly doesn't need to be changed…I just like to vary things from time to time). Be careful not to overcook potatoes. Gina's directions to cook for 10 minutes is perfect.

  82. Excellent recipe! We substituted Fage Greek yogurt for the mayo and it added a nice zing to it while lowering the fat content as well! We will definitely make this one again!

  83. Made this for dinner tonight – with boca burgers. SO good! It totally felt like I was cheating on my diet. Will definitely make this one again! (p.s. – I'm not a green bell pepper fan, either, but I followed the recipe and it was perfect – the pepper flavor was very subtle and really complimented the other ingredients)

  84. I finally got around to making a batch this weekend, and it is SO good! I love potato salad, and am always sad that I have to avoid it a delis, barbeques, etc. This really hits the spot. I like the above poster's idea of putting in a little dill. I'll do that next time. I'm not a fan of raw bell pepper so I used celery in its place, and it turned out very well. Thanks, Gina!

    • =) Thanks Kris, I grew up with dill in everything so it just didn't taste right without it. I also used celery as my boyfriend doesn't care for bell peppers. I also should mention, one of my very close friends highly recommended this recipe (more like NAGGED) and she suggested omitting the vinegar. (she tried it with and didn't like it) so I left it out as well because I'm not a fan of vinegar. I only mention this because I don't know how the dill would marry with the vinegar and that the vinegar would overpower the dill.

  85. Made this tonight with the slow cooker pulled pork and it was good but I wasn't blown away, until I added some dill. Then it was like a flavor explosion in my mouth!! I make a killer potato salad but it's just that, a "diet" killer! So this was a nice change. Great recipe! It's nice to have a recipe I don't feel guilty about. I was very skeptical about the sauce being enough to cover the potatoes and boy was I wrong. Never would have thought it would be enough. Just goes to show you learn something new every day!
    Oh on a side note: I also boil a couple of cloves of garlic (coarsely chopped) with the potatoes, They help take out the "blah" flavor of the plain boiled potato =)

  86. This was AWESOME!! I usually don't eat potato salad because I am not a big fan of mayo, but this was delicious!! The dijon mustard gave it such a great flavor, and the mayo was just the right amount!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!!

  87. The recipe is an excellent. See my recipe on

  88. This recipe is AMAZING!!!! My hubby is picky as can be so I left out the red wine vinegar from the sauce and it didn't seem to miss anything. I am so excited to have found your site and this is just one of many recipes that I can't wait to try!!!

  89. I am a little confused….do we combine the onion, green pepper, etc while the potatoes are boiling or mix it in after…the recipe was not too clear to me.

  90. Made this for dinner tonight…was wonderful!!! Thanks!!

  91. Hi Gina,

    What are the tiny symbols next to the servings and size below the recipe?? Thanks!

  92. I am new to your website – a friend told me about it a few weeks ago, have already made about 7 of your recipes and they are amazing! Have already made this salad twice and its fantastic!

  93. I made this the Paula Deen way last night, with kielbasa. I had not yet seen your recipe It was delicious, but I'll definitely use your recipe next time,but omit the mayo. Makes it more picnic friendly. Needs no refrigeration.

  94. Just mixed this up to go with broiled salmon for dinner and even without marinating, I can tell it's going to be delicious. Love having so many options for healthy eating. It makes getting back to the pre-holiday weight so much easier. Thank you Gina!

  95. I've been meaning to post on this recipe.
    My mom is a totally great cook- but hyper critical of other's cooking. she has also successfully lost 80 lbs on WW.
    Even this recipe WOW'd her at a cookout over the summer at our house. I make skinny taste a "shortcut" on her home computer!

  96. I made this tonight with another recipe i found on here, (, and it was amaaaaazing together. My 18 month old daughter also loved it 🙂

  97. Gina,
    This is delicious! I made it tonight and the smell was amazing so I ate it as soon as it was cool enough. I realized while making it I didn't have any mayo so I used light sour cream and it gave it just a tiny bit of sweet/tangyness. The sauce is so light! I think I may make a dressing from it. Thanks again!!!

  98. Gina,

    thank you! thank you! for this recipe, I made it last night and it was DELICIOUS and even better today, I'm having this for lunch

    thank you, I will make the enchiladas tonite

  99. I made this Saturday night with your pollo sabroso. It was so good! Love the vinegar and the lightness of the sauce. The next day I cut up some of the cold chicken and mixed in, still tasty! I want to try adding some fresh veggies after the potatoes soak up some of the sauce.


  100. That's awesome!

  101. I love this! I made it last night for my roomate along with some baked tilapia. It has an amazing amount of flavor and it was perfect for a hot rainy night. I love ALL of your recipies. I started weight watchers this week and I'm down 3 pounds thanks to your awesome recipes.

  102. I'm glad you all liked it, I really love this potato salad myself!

  103. I just made this tonight for supper along with the Baked Chicken w/ Dijon & Lime. Making the Skinny Strawberry fool for dessert too!

    This potato salad is really really good! In fact, I really wasn't expecting it to be so good! lol (I'm not usually a big fan of low-fat cooking, but apparently YOU know how to flavor things up!) We don't like bell pepper, so I left it out. I really cannot wait to sit down and eat! ( & to try all your other recipes! Thanks for all your hard work on this site.)

    Waiting on the chicken to finish cooking, can't wait to try it! =)

  104. I made this today and like it very much. The bell pepper flavors the dressing, so if you don't care for that flavor I would cut back on the amount of bell pepper used. The dressing is nice and tangy, definitely a new twist of mayonnaise dressings.

  105. This is delicious! My family loved it! I'll be making this potato salad again. Thanks for your yummy recipes! They make it easy to stick to my weight watchers plan yet still enjoying my favorite foods.

  106. This was great! I upped the dijon to a tablespoon (LOVE dijon) and did a little less onions. Big hit with my family, too! Great summer potato salad.

  107. Made this last night for a bbq. Everyone loved it! Including me and I don't usually like potato salad!

  108. I'd suggest using greek yogurt as a replacement for mayo!

  109. This is a great recipe! I was so depressed to hear that potato salad was 8 points+ for a cup. When I found this I was so relieved…I can now enjoy potato salad again. Will definitely make again.

  110. I made this today with my Memorial Day meal, including your turkey burgers with zucchini on the grill. Everything turned out great. I like the flavor of the potato salad. I've learned SO many new recipes thanks to your blog. You're helping me lose weight & eat great meals, thank you!

  111. Good for you Mary!

  112. Sounds great..Put this on my menu for this week.

    I'm making the asian meatballs and fried rice for tonight and chili in the crockpot for tomorrow.

    I went to my WW meeting last night and lost 4 pounds thanks to your great recipes.

    Love this site. Thanks for all u do.

  113. i overcooked the potatoes a tid bit, but didn't love the taste of this potato salad. Perhaps I'd try it again and leave out the Dijon. the taste was too 'pickled' for me, could have been the red wine vinegar

  114. YUM! This potato salad was the perfect addition to my dinner tonight! I forgot to add the mayo and ate it without and it still tasted great. I added it in after and the mayo leaves a smoother taste. Definitely one I'll put in my recipe book!! 🙂

  115. I haven't tried this with roasted potatoes but you can certainly make this the night before.

  116. I would like to make this today for a bbq tomorrow, how does it hold over night???

  117. Would it be okay to roast the potatoes instead of boiling them? I know it would be more work, but I want to be sure it wouldn't cause the texture to be off or anything…

  118. I don't like deli potato salad, but homemade potato salad is wonderful! So happy you all agree!!

  119. I just got done making this and can't wait to try it tonight with dinner!! I don't normally like potato salad but this one looks great!! Thank you for all your hard work!! 🙂

  120. This was delicious! I love your blog Gina and can't thank you enough for helping me to find wonderful low point weight watcher meals.

  121. Does anyone know the points plus for this recipe?

  122. how many point plus values is this?

  123. I made this today, and I am so pleased. I used celery rather than green pepper since that is what I had on hand. I will definitely be making this again!

  124. Hi Gina,

    I love your blog! Do you posting the NI or the Points Plus for this recipe?


  125. I made this the other day & loved it. Thanks!

  126. Hey Gina!
    Do you know the new points conversion for this salad? I love potato salad and would love to make this!

  127. Maybe fat free Greek yogurt?

  128. Can you think of anything to substitute the mayo with, I'm allergic to eggs, but really would love to have potato salad, it's been years….

  129. This is an incredible recipe. I made it last night and my family loved it! Including my sister, who despises the mayo-fest that is normal potato salad.

    Thank you for sharing all these recipes. I can't wait to follow more of them!

  130. I made this last night. I think I cut my potatoes a bit too big. It was a bit dry. I'll try it again for sure though, it has potential.

  131. This recipe has become a staple in my home. The flavors mix well together and this is a great side dish to compliment any meal!

  132. This was by far the best low-fat version of potato salad ever!! Keep up the great work! I love your site and your recipes!!!

  133. This has become our new favorite potato salad, as I have made it the past 3 weekends, LOL! It is so nice to have a change from all the mayonnaise based ones, and it is very easy to make. I am new to your site and look forward to trying even more recipes. Thanks so much!

  134. Wonderful! I make the best creamy fattening potato salad, but I only make it when those who expect it of me will be around to help eat it! I just made this and it might be a good substitute! No one has mentioned if it holds well overnight. Does it?

  135. I don't have a baked bean recipe, but I'll work on that! I know someone who makes amazing baked beans, I'll get her recipe!

  136. This was an awesome recipe, I will defiantly be making this again!

  137. I made this for our 5th of July cookout. It was fab! Gina, do you happen to have a baked bean recipe? I'd love to pair this with a great bb recipe and lean burgers or grilled chicken on an Archer's sandwich round. Loved this recipe!

  138. I'm sure cider vinegar would be fine. Go for it!

  139. I was wondering if you could substitute apple cider vinegar instead of using red wine vinegar. Would it drastically change the taste? I just don't feel like running to the store again! haha


  140. I think I'm going to try it for 4th of July! I can't wait!!! Thanks!

  141. Yes, I like to cut them up before, they cook quicker that way.

  142. I plan on making this tonight, but I have a question that's probably not a big deal but I'd really like to know.

    Do you cut up the potatoes before you boil them?

  143. I made this potato salad tonight and love it!
    Hard to believe it is low fat.

  144. @WW member – I always sub things for whatever I have on hand! I like the sound of the vegetable button on your microwave.

  145. this potato salad is EXCELLENT….took it to a bbq and it was a huge hit! Subbed the green peppers for red, and the green onions for chives, and the red onion for white and it was still wonderful! I used subs because this is what I had on hand. Also, I microwave my potatoes. Cut them up, salt them, put a bit of water on them, and hit the "fresh vegetable" button on my microwave. Perfect every time! Thanks for the recipe….

  146. love, love, love this recipe! Best potato salad I ever had! Truly restaurant quality! Thank you so much!

  147. I made this tonight for a bbq dinner. It was fantastic. Thank you! 🙂

  148. Thanks for leaving your comments!! This is excellent, one would never know it's low in fat!

  149. Delicious!!! I made this last night and it was a hit! My brother kept walking by and scrunching his nose but he was the first to clean his plate! Love it! Thanks!!

  150. I made this last night…. it was sooo amazingly good i don't know what to say! I did play around with the recipe and instead of pepper I used corn but it was still so good! thanks for such a yum recipe!

  151. I just finished making this – it turned out awesome! I used stone ground mustard instead of dijon and it worked out well. I also topped it with hormel's pre-cooked bacon pieces-yum! Thanks for the great recipe.

  152. Really, really good. I made this on Easter and everyone loved it. They had a hard time believing how little fat was in in. Thank you so much for doing this blog. Have a good weekend.

  153. I have always made a version of this. Fun additions: capers, pitted Kalamatta olives, celery, dash of dill, dash of lemon juice….

  154. Made this one as a side for Easter this year and it was pretty good! I doubled the recipe and I think I might have accidentally left out the mayo update, but it was still pretty good! Letting everything marinate a little while really helps all the flavors to blend together!

  155. Sure, just cut them smaller. You're welcome and Thank you 🙂

  156. I was wondering if the larger size red potatoes will work in this dish. I love the baby reds but where I live they are really over priced. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes. I make one almost everyday and everything is delicious.

  157. I absolutely loved this! I've never been a big potato salad fan, but I couldnt stop eating it!

  158. this was a really good potato salad. I might sub all scallions for the red onion next time just cause i'm not a big raw onion fan – but everyone else didn't mind them! This was a perfect mix of flavor & moisture!

  159. I love it too!!

  160. I just made this today and it is delicious!!!! I couldn't stop eating it. I am picky about my potato salad because most are too heavy, but this one is very light and has just enough mayonnaise. I also liked the dijon mustard in it. I will be making this again, everyone should try it.

  161. I am loving your website. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but there are several that look awesome, that I haven't seen anywhere else. Thank you for converting over to WW points. The more diverse the menu, the easier it is to stick with the program.

  162. The A-Z points food list was a helpful link I found to use when you are in a pinch. It's not my site. I use my weight watchers book and my calculator to figure out the points. I actually haven't used that site in a while, I'm surprised the points don't match. They always used to when I used to check. Thanks for the info.

  163. I am a little concerned that some of the points on your weight watchers A-Z points food list don't match up with the points calculator on the actual WW website. How did you arrive at your totals? I appreciate all the work that must have gone into its creation and mean no disrespect. Just concerned about sticking with the plan.

  164. I'm not a potato salad person at all, but i made this to take to a BBQ. It was a total hit! I even liked it! The best part was the reactions when i told everyone it was a WW recipe 🙂

  165. I made this salad yesterday and my husband who is very finicky about his potato salad couldn't say enough positive things about it! It was really a nice change from the usual potato salad with mayo. Definitely a keeper for my files.

  166. This salad is delicious! I will definitely be taking this to picnics and making it for myself on a regular basis! Soooo good!

  167. I made this and it was delicious, thanks!

  168. This potato salad seems very classy to me! I dislike the mayo-glued potato cobblers that you usually find in BBQ parties because they lack flavour and have too much bad stuff, but this looks great, light and healthy!

  169. it does look just about perfect!

  170. I've never understood the really heavy potato salads. I want something light and refreshing during the summer. This looks perfect!

  171. Hi Gina! Thanx for dropping by my blog & leaving a comment! 🙂

    Your recipes on here look delicious!!! I'm bookmarking u! 😉

  172. This looks very yummy. I've been looking for a more healthier version of potatoe salad. I can't wait to try it.

  173. I'm sure this will be good. Reminds me of my mom's recipe which is to marinate the potatoes and onions overnight in Italian salad dressing.
    Can't wait to try this!

  174. I usually hate potato salad. I am not a fan of mayo, but this one looks great!
