If you’re like me, you grew up with big family BBQs in the backyard with tables and tables of good food available. The memories were priceless, but as I got older I realized I wanted to find healthier alternatives for the same foods—and if I could make it myself I'd be all the more satisfied.
One thing I could always count on to be there: potato salad. Carb-heavy, super filling, and the perfect compliment next to a burger or hot dog. Surprisingly, recreating the infamous side is very possible and can be reimagined as a much lighter version with just a few small tweaks.
In this recipe, Rachel shows us how to make a mustard-based dressing for the potato salad—the secret ingredient to the salad's flavor that can be repurposed for other dishes and marinades.
∙ 5 red potatoes
∙ 1/2 cup chopped celery
For the dressing:
∙ 1/4 cup olive oil
∙ 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
∙ 1 tablespoon chopped dill
∙ 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
∙ 1 lemon (juice)
1. Slice potatoes and put into pot with water
2. Boil potatoes until they can be easily pierced with a fork
3. Blend all dressing ingredients in a food processor
4. Combine potatoes, celery, and dressing into a bowl
5. Gently toss all ingredients and enjoy!
