Farmers Market Potato Salad

Hi Everyone,

I have to tell you I have been on a major potato salad kick this year!  I think this is my 3rd potato salad that I am sharing with you this spring and summer season.  Potatoes are such a great versatile vegetable that can be prepared in so many ways.  I thought today I would share with you a fresh summertime potato salad that is perfect for this hot weather.  I love it because it’s a nice light salad!  I purchased all my ingredients at the Farmers Market except for my Tasteful Selections Honey Gold Potatoes.  Oh and today’s recipe is my Farmers Market Potato Salad.

This salad is chock full of healthy vegetables like zucchini, onion, corn and tomatoes. Not only is it light and fresh tasting but it’s also low-calorie! About 1 1/4 cup of this tasty salad is only 105 calories! Score! You can’t beat those calories for a potato salad, however, it’s hard to stick to one serving. I kept eating it straight from my serving bowl. he he

When making this salad I used Tasteful Selections Honey Gold Potatoes, which are cute little golden-colored potatoes. They are the perfect bite size potato with no need to cut them. What’s even better is Tasteful Selections are already pre-washed for you, so no scrubbing is needed. That makes life a little bit easier!Plus the skin is so tender you don’t need to peel your potatoes! Awesome! I think you will love Tasteful Selection Potatoes, just as much as we do.

To make this recipe, I boiled my potatoes, but debated about roasting them, but with the temperatures in the 100’s, I didn’t want to turn the oven on, way to hot!!! While my potatoes were cooking, in a large pan I sautéed my onion, zucchini and corn, just until it was tender, about 5 minutes or so. Once the potatoes were cooked and cooled, I added my vegetables along with some tomatoes and fresh basil. Gave it a nice mix and made a fabulous vinaigrette dressing to go over the top. After all you need dressing with a salad!

  1. What a great potato salad with all of those yummy summer veggies! Great recipe!

  2. I LOVE Tasteful Selections Honeygold potatoes. I found them at Target and was surprised at their smooth, buttery taste. If you don’t have a lot of time, a super-easy way to make them is to microwave them and then toss with a little butter or olive oil and fresh or dried dill, kosher salt and pepper. Yum – I must go get some!
