Skinny Potato Salad, Caesar Style
Here’s a fresh new take on potato salad. If you like potato salad and Caesar salad you are going to love this one!  It comes together quickly since I’m using a bottled light Caesar dressing. Each serving, 96 calories and 3 grams of fat.

Healthy Benefits

No need to keep potatoes out of your diet because they’re rich in complex carbohydrates that can supply energy. They’re low in calories and contain no fat. They contain more potassium than any other fresh vegetable, even more than bananas! Potatoes also contain vitamins C and B6.

Shopping Tip
Dutch baby gold potatoes are sold in bags in the produce section of many supermarkets. If you can’t find them use small red potatoes.
You’ll find Cardini’s Light Caesar Dressing or Girard’s Light Caesar dressing at most supermarkets. I found both at Vons/Safeway and Gelsons. They both are super delicious tasting.

Prep Tips

It’s essential that you use a rubber spatula to mix any potato salad. If you use a metal spoon, it will break the potatoes and become more like mashed potatoes.
