Tri Colored Pepper Potato Salad

Potatoes get a bad rap in the media. The whole “Don’t eat white foods” thing baffles me because there are SO many white foods that are super nutritious. Look at cauliflower, garlic, onions, bananas, cabbage, beans, milk, cottage cheese and so much more. Potatoes not only taste great, but they’re good for you. One medium sized (5.3-ounce) potato, eaten with the skin on has just 110 calories and is packed with more potassium than a banana and half your daily value of vitamin C. Potatoes themselves are also naturally fat-free and gluten free! I think the reason people believe potatoes are unhealthy is a result of the more common ways they are prepared. Fries anyone? Or an innocent baked potato drowning in butter, sour cream and/or stuffed with bacon and cheese? While potato salad is a much-loved traditional summer side, it can also be heavy on the calories and fat. 

This Tri Colored Pepper Potato Salad uses a modest amount of heart-healthy olive oil instead of the traditional mayonnaise. Also, I added colorful veggies to pump up the nutrition content. All Summer holidays including Memorial Day, Father’s Day, July 4th, and Labor Day call for barbecues and gatherings with friends and family. Enjoy this vegan and gluten free side at your next party- your guests will cheer! Make sure to prepare it ahead of time to allow the flavors to develop- it’s much tastier the next day.
