Spring time flavours - Warmed Spicy Potato Salad
by Ashley Cattell, Registered Dietitian on April 21st, 2010
There is nothing like a delicious potato salad to round-out a spring time meal.
I was looking for a recipe that lost the mayonnaise, heavy with unhealthy fats, without sacrificing a pinch of flavour.
I love how this recipe calls for whole grain dijon mustard. The texture adds a whole new level to the experience.
I must tell you that this variation exceeded my expectations! The heat created from a dash of chili peppers, crisp freshness from the parsley, with a slight kick from the red wine and rice vinegars rejuvenates the traditional potato salad.
Might I add my fiance, a true lover of the traditional steak & potato dinner, couldn't get enough of this healthy version!
This fresh twist on
potato salad pairs nicely with spring peas and a barbequed lean cut steak, pork loin, or marinated tofu and vegetable skewers.
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this recipe. Feel free to share healthy tips and tricks of your own!
