Skinny Red Potato Salad

This recipe apparently comes from Paula Deen.  That's right, this SKINNY potato salad recipe comes from the queen of butter!  It is delicious, and definitely better for you than most potato salads.  If you want to fatten it up a bit, some crumbled bacon would be devine :)  We served it up with some burgers and some grillin' beans.  

Skinny Red Potato Salad

  • 4 cups baby red potatoes, cut in small pieces
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
  • 3 scallions, diced
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp reduced fat mayonnaise
  • salt and fresh pepper

Boil potatoes in salted water until soft, approx 10 minutes. Drain and let cool.

While the potatoes are boiling, combine red onion, green pepper, mustard, olive oil, vinegar and mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Mix well and let the flavors marinade while the potatoes cook. Once the potatoes are done and cool, mix into the bowl and add scallions and additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve room temperature or refrigerate until ready to serve.
