Potato salad is a beloved tradition at many cookouts, but the classic variety can be tough on your healthy eating plans. Make this flavorful variant instead. Balsamic vinegar and dill give it a snap reminiscent of pickles, but if that’s not your herb of choice, it can easily be made with rosemary, basil or thyme instead for a potato salad you can enjoy time and again.
This peppy salad highlights the natural beauty of perfectly cooked red potatoes with a light dressing of balsamic vinegar and dill so you can enjoy potassium-packed potatoes as a healthful side dish as your next cookout.
Tip: If you don’t have white wine vinegar on hand, go ahead and substitute it with any delicious vinegar you have in the house.
