Summer Potato Salad

Potato salad is a dish that I find myself making over and over in the warm summer months. It’s a great side for a BBQ or picnic, and something that I tend to whip up when a large group comes over. This salad a is a lighter version of the traditional dish, which is usually made with mayonnaise. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and can be prepared a day ahead. Give this recipe a try, I promise it will become one of your favorites. Enjoy!
