Perfect for outdoor gatherings, potlucks, or picnics!

Calling something the “best ever” is a pretty bold claim. Here at SkinnyMs., we believe, with wholehearted confidence, that this potato salad deserves to take home the gold.

Our Best Ever Potato Salad recipe calls for red potatoes, which hold their shape very well after being cooked to tender perfection. A beautiful blend of bold, flavorful ingredients like egg yolks, celery, sweet onion, and pickles form a mixture that coats the cooked potatoes. Yellow dijon mustard gives the potatoes a tangy punch, while a subtle dusting of paprika adds a zesty touch to this yummy side dish.

And what’s a potato salad without mayo? We’ve included our clean version of mayo in the medley of nutritious ingredients, slashing calories and fat in comparison to conventional recipes. Rich, creamy, and waistline friendly? Yes, please!

Perfect for outdoor gatherings, potlucks, or picnics, this crowd-pleasing salad will yield rave reviews. We promise!
