Let’s face it; potato salad is NOT salad. And if you’re making it with typical store-bought mayonnaise, it’s filled with some no-good types of fat and chemicals. Potatoes are delicious, and they are A-OK in my book, even though they are often vilified for being one of the “white foods” that are known to raise blood sugar too high, too fast. However, there are many valuable nutrients in those little tots, and when a cooked potato is cooled, as in potato salad, the starches form a good source prebiotic food that feeds the healthy bacteria that live in your gut, helping them to proliferate.
But what if we actually turned a pile of delicious potatoes into an actual salad that was both delicious and and nutritious and filled with all things summer?
