Nothing is as perfect for a picnic or barbecue than a good potato salad. But keeping a mayonnaise potato salad cold to prevent it from spoiling can be tricky. And then there’s the issue of all the added fat and calories with creamy mayonnaise based potato salads too. So because of this, I have decided to stop making them, at least for this summer anyway. Instead, I’ll be making fresh and delicious potato salads like this one. For this recipe I added celery, celery leaves, fresh parsley, and a little onion. I seasoned it with a little apple cider vinegar, good olive oil and salt and pepper. It’s a fresh and tasty side dish perfect for any summer get-together that won’t ruin your diet.
