Tri-Color Potato Salad
Use a bag of tri-colored potatoes! You can usually find a bag of "sunrise medley" potatoes on an end at your local big box grocery store. Here's what you'll need for this lighter version of a traditional potato salad:
1 bag Sunrise Medley tri-colored potatoes
3/4 cup Miracle Whip Light (yes, you can use Light Mayo or Vegenaise)
1 tbsp mild yellow mustard
1/2 cup red pepper, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 stalk celery, diced
Salt free spices (I used rosemary, basil, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper)
1/2 cup scallions (1/4 to mix in and 1/4 to garnish)
Here are those loverly tri-colored potatoes.
Cut each potato in half. They're small enough that each potato is bite sized. How cute and festive is that purple potato?!
All cut up and ready to roll...
Well ready to go into a pot of water at a rolling boil. Cook them for about 13-15 minutes.
I let Mr. Tiki corn cob holder tell me when they're "fork tender" so that a fork doesn't break apart my test piece.
When they're ready, put the potatoes in an ice bath to stop the cooking process so the potatoes don't get mushy.
In a small bowl, add the Miracle Whip and mustard and mix together.
It should look a loverly pale yellow when it's well combined.
In a larger bowl, add the potatoes, mayo/mustard combo, celery, red peppers and onion.
Add your spices. I used rosemary, black pepper, paprika, basil and garlic powder.
Add your scallions.
Combine until each bite is coated in this loveliness, sprinkle a little more scallions on top for a garnish.
