Reduced-Fat Potato Salad
From Cook's Country
Traditional potato salad is loaded with fat and calories thanks to the generous amount of mayonnaise in the dressing. Simply switching from full-fat mayo to a lower-fat version only gradually reduced the numbers. For substantial slimming down, we made a dressing with ¾ cup of potatoes mashed in their cooking water and a combo of fat-free Greek yogurt and light mayo (we had to have some for a creamy coating).
Traditional potato salad has 380 calories, 30 grams of fat, and 4 grams of saturated fat 1-cup per serving. Our changes brought these numbers down to 130 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 0 grams of saturated fat.
We recommend Hellmann’s mayonnaise (known as Best Foods west of the Rockies) and prefer the light version to the low-fat one. Dill pickle relish can stand in for the sweet pickle relish.
