Potao Salad for the Fourth iStock

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO MAKE FOURTH OF JULY POTATO SALAD:

  • 6 red potatoes, unpeeled
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 small/medium red onion, chopped
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped (optional)
  • 1/3 cup of mayo or non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbs of yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbs of red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp of salt, pepper, celery seed and dried dill

PUTTING YOUR FOURTH OF JULY POTATO SALAD TOGETHER:

  • Cook (boil) and cube potatoes
  • In a large bowl, mix together the mayo or yogurt, mustard, vinegar and the seasonings
  • Add the onion, celery and potatoes and mix together gently, almost like tumbling (you don't want to break down the potatoes)
  • If you are opting to add the eggs, add them now, saving a few to garnish the salad. When adding the eggs, again do this gently, fold them into the salad.

Enjoy! And Happy Fourth of July
