Easy Low-fat Potato Salad

What goes with a gazzillion spring and summer meals?….wow, good guess!  Below is my mom’s recipe for potato salad: easy, classic, delightful.  I’ve added the step of making it ‘Stained Glass Potato Salad’, so you can ignore the coloring of the eggs if you want it to look traditional.  Enjoy!

What you’ll need: 

  • one dozen eggs, hardboiled and peeled
  • 9-10 medium sized potatoes
  • 2 cups Miracle Whip (I use Light and it turns out great)
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard (or 2 tsp yellow)
  • Food coloring (if you want to make it ‘stained glass’…great for Easter)
  • Salt and pepper  *you can also add a little dill

    1. Hardboil the eggs and peel the shell.  Place the peeled eggs in various glass of water mixed with whatever colors of food coloring you would like. ** You can also skip the next steps and just make deviled eggs!
    2. Peel the potatoes and boil them (cook enough so a fork can poke through them easily).  Let the potatoes cool.
    3. Cut up the eggs and potatoes.  Mix with the other ingredients.
    4. Keep refrigerated and eat within a couple days.
