Skinny Potato Salad

This creamy, skinny potato salad is a welcome addition to almost all your summertime activities. Only we have to know how many calories it has.


I think there is a million ways to make potato salad. It certainly is a very versatile dish.  I start off with a mayonnaise base and build onto that. I like to add celery and boiled eggs. The next time you are making potato salad why not add a bit of Cajun seasoning? Also try the reduced fat mayonnaise. Try to cut the calories and fat where ever you can without sacrificing the flavor is very hard to do. I would try this instead of your usual potato salad. See if your family notices. I doubt it. Mine certainly did not.
