If you are a fan of traditional potato salad, you’ll want to try this version with fresh chopped celery, Greek yogurt and a touch of spicy mustard. Potatoes are full of vitamin C and B6, potassium, iron and dietary fiber so Memorial Day is not the only time to have them on your menu. This lighter potato salad recipe is a wonderful side dish for the upcoming spring and summer holidays and get-togethers. Keep the potato salad covered and chilled in an airtight Ziploc® Container with One Press Seal for up to three days.
