More About This Recipe
  • Full disclosure: we adore potato salad, but can feel a little guilty loading our paper plates up with it during potlucks. This light potato salad eases the guilt (and calories!) using fat-free mayonnaise. You could also use Greek yogurt to eliminate some of the calories without sacrificing the creamy texture and taste of traditional potato salad. If you want to plan for the summer party season, why not make this lightened up version for yourself and then make a crowd-pleasing potato salad like our Loaded Baked Potato Salad for guests? To make the lighter version for yourself, simply cut the recipe in half to cut the serving size to three. You can enjoy the party guilt-free and have leftovers!
