This is a different potato salad I make when I have an abundance of fresh Basil from my garden in the summer. Its a refreshingly different kind of potato salad that is relatively low in fat compared to the others!
- 1 1⁄3 cups lightly packed fresh basil leaves
- 1 cup fat-free buttermilk
- 1⁄2 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- cracked black pepper
- 4 1⁄2 lbs unpeeled round small red potatoes
- 1 cup sliced green onion (use less if you like)
