I don’t know if it’s my Irish heritage, but potatoes are one of my favorite foods. Nutritionally speaking, potatoes get a bad rap. But they’re not just a starchy food that ends up in the fryer at a fast food joint. If you eat a medium potato with the skin on, you get 45 percent of your recommended daily supply of vitamin C and more potassium than a banana. With its neutral, adaptable flavor, a potato can fit in with just about any kind of meal.
As a member of the Recipe Redux, I’ve been invited to develop a healthy potato salad recipe for the summer barbecue season. My family loves potato salad, but it’s not the healthiest food when it’s laced with mayonnaise. This version is much more nutritious, consisting of a delicious mix of vegetables and a light Greek dressing.
