Potato Power Recipe

Posted by Collin West from health.com on

Eating healthy can be a little overwhelming sometimes. Nobody can stay excited about bland low calorie meals that seem to all be a minor variation of the same thing. We love a potato salad, and a beautiful one is even better. We search and try all sorts of recipes to integrate into our focus on being healthy. Thanks to Health.com we found a great potato salad recipe that is sure to impress. Tricolor baby potatoes liven up this dish, and mustard seeds (often used in Indian cooking) add a crunchy texture and great flavor to this can’t-miss side. We really liked to do a splash of worcestershire upon serving. 

Tell us how you doctored up this already awesome salad.
