Warmer temps means it’s time for all of the cookouts! I love all the food that comes with a cookout–burgers, all of the sides, and lots of yummy drinks and desserts.

Healthy Potato Salad
Potato salad is the perfect side during the warmer months! The only problem is that store bought potato salad are usually packed with funky ingredients that won’t leave us feeling great after. That’s why I love this potato salad! It’s made with simple ingredients that still leave it creamy and delicious.
If you have a cookout coming up or just want a salad to have ready for this week, this Healthy Potato Salad is the perfect one to make! I used a mix of Avocado Oil Mayo (I used this one!) and plain greek yogurt. Plus, a mix of crunchy and flavorful add in’s to keep this super simple and delicious.
I can guarantee that you will have everyone convinced that this potato salad is made with simple, better-for-you ingredients. We can still enjoy these classics, while putting a healthier spin on them. Which is one of my favorite things to do!

Can I omit the greek yogurt in this?
Yes, if you want to make this completely dairy free then you can switch the greek yogurt for more mayo.
Why do you use Avocado Oil Mayo?
I love using this mayo because it is made with simpler ingredients. A lot of times you can find ingredients or oils in mayo that aren’t needed. When making healthier switches, it’s important to look at what condiments you’re choosing. Those can often times be the ones that are most hidden with sugars or funky ingredients!
Do I need to boil the potatoes?
Yes! It is important to boil the potatoes to fork tender before making them into a potato salad. I also like to keep the skin on the potatoes too. Make sure you cut the potatoes before placing them in to boil too.
Can you boil the potatoes ahead of time for potato salad?
Yes! I love that idea. If you want to save some time during the process of making potato salad, then boil the potatoes prior to making it. You can leave them in the fridge once they have cooled down and before you decide to make the potato salad.
Can I use any potatoes?
You can use a different potato here, but I love what red potatoes add to this one! Keep the skin on too! Another potato that I would suggest is Yukon Gold potatoes.
How do I store this potato salad?
The best way to store potato salad is in the fridge for 4-5 days. I like to store it in these containers to maintain freshness while in the fridge.
