Low-Point Potato Salad



A great dish to take to cookouts and gatherings; but have the recipe ready to give to others, because they are sure to ask for it! :) This delicious recipe for potato salad has a slight "kick". You can spice it up even more by adding more creole seasoning, or feel free to leave out the Creole seasoning if you don't care for spice. Delicious and easy... those are soon becoming my two favorite words.


Low-Point Potato Salad

Ingredients:

- 6 medium potatoes, peeled and largely diced
- 5 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cup finely chopped celery
- 1 tsp. onion powder or 1 green onion, diced

- 1 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 Tbs spicy brown mustard
- 1/2 Tbs regular mustard
- 1 cup fat-free mayonnaise
- 3 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped

Bring potatoes to a boil in a large saucepan using water and/or chicken broth. Boil 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool. Stir mayonnaise and mustards together, then add the seasonings. Add potatoes, celery, and eggs to mayonnaise mixture and toss until combined. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Refrigerate leftovers. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
