Low Calorie Potato Salad

This is a recipe that was in Prevention magazine a while back.  This potato salad has around 130 calories per serving, so fairly guiltless.  And it's light and tasty too.  Perfect for the upcoming warmer months.

4 medium baking potatoes
2/3 cup low-calorie mayonnaise
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 sweet green pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 hard boiled egg, coarsely chopped

Boil potatoes 20 minutes or until tender.  Cool.  Chop coarsely (I peeled mine this time but they are also good unpeeled).  Mix with other ingredients.  Chill for 4 hours before serving.

Low calorie and mayonnaise should never exist in the same sentence! We're grilling burgers for dinner... I think that potato salad sounds like a good side dish! (the full calorie version, hehe)

This is really close to how I make it except instead of celery I use pickles. Oh and I leave all the fat in it! ;)

I've tried substituting Greek yoghurt for part of the mayo. That helps a little bit, too.
