Nothing beats a good potato salad at a summer barbecue, but unfortunately they are usually laden with a mayonnaise that contains soy, sugar, vinegar, and other health destroying ingredients. However, when you combine a good red potato and a mayonnaise that eliminates all the bad and inserts a lot of good, you get yourself a healthy potato salad recipe that leaves no compromise in the taste department.


The purpose of this healthy potato salad recipe is to turn a traditional favourite into a healthy one, so we can still enjoy the taste but without the gastrointestinal upset. Using red potatoes, and a mayonnaise that incorporates olive oil and apple cider vinegar, we can eliminate a lot of those issues and actually improve the digestion of your meal.

This is a win-win for potato salad lovers everywhere.
