We LOOVVVE us a good warm potato salad! Which, you probably already know, if you’ve tried our epic recipe! But, with Mackenzie trying to minimize her dairy intake, I thought it might be a great time to “clean- up” one of our best recipes and make it a bit more healthy! This easy and delicious Potato salad is perfect for Summer BBQ- ing! Light and refreshing, yet filling and FULL of flavor. It comes together in just a few minutes and is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
This recipe is fantastic because you still get all of the delicious hearty flavors from the potatoes, bacon, and corn but the fresh scallions and dill really bring it to a new level- you won’t even miss the sour cream- we promise! Plus- the added arugula makes you feel like you are eating more of a “salad” salad… so there! haha.
