Red, White & Blue Potato Salad

Whether you’re celebrating Memorial Day, the 4th of July or just looking for an easy and tasty dish for a cookout, picnic or potluck, this potato salad is for you! We gave regular potato salad a patriotic spin by using red, white and blue (purple) potatoes and gave it a healthier spin by using Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Potatoes are also a good source of potassium, which is vital for bone and muscle health. In fact, one serving of this potato salad contains 19% of your daily value of potassium, which is more than one banana!

Nutrition Tip: Good news: Veggie-packed salsa counts as a serving of vegetables! This one is loaded with vitamin C. Don’t forget to keep your tomatoes on the counter (refrigerating them dulls the flavor).
