"Dietitian's tip: A mixture of smooth and whole-grain mustards forms the base for vinaigrette much lighter than traditional mayonnaise dressings. This salad is most flavorful when served warm or at room temperature. Makes 6 "healthy" (read: really small) servings."
Serving Size: 1 (92 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I cut this down to serve 2, and it worked out really well. I love mustard and vinegar, so I knew it would be delicious! Loved that this was so low in calories and fat. I had to used minced vidalia onion instead of shallots, because I was out, but it still tasted wonderful. Made for Zaar Stars. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is a great potato salad recipe! I was looking for something without mayo to save on the calories and knowing how much we like mustard and vinegar at our house, I figured this would be a winner. It's delicious! Thank you for sharing it!"
"We were divided on this. DH really liked it and DD and I thought it was a little too mustardy. On another note, it was very easy to make. I would make this again, but cut down on the mustard. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag."
"OMG... This was wonderful. I could have sat and ate the whole dish myself. I love the mustard and vinegar dressing. Very zippy. I will make this again. Paired with fresh green beans and baked porkchops. Wonderful dinner."
"The first word that came into my mind to describe this was 'nummy'. I cut it in half and had it as my lunch today alone side some fresh tomato slices. Other than that, the only differences I made were to steam the potatoes rather than boil (I use my electric steamer) and use dried onion flakes instead of the shallots. I usually do that when a dish like this calls for raw onions as I don't like the sharpness of raw onion but I do like the overall flavour they bring to a dish. It all worked out great. I think the next time I half the recipe I will quarter the dressing rather than halve because there was a bunch left over after I was done eating the potatoes. That wasn't even close to a problem though because it tasted great on the tomatoes too :) Made for Photo Tag."
"This is a great potato salad that almost presents as regular potatoes with a wonderful dressing on top. There is lots of mustard in this recipe and we love mustard! Very easy to put together; I made the dressing ahead of time and just poured over after the potatoes were done cooking. I did not have shallots and used regular onion instead, just cut the quantity back a bit. The serving size is very 'healthy' - at the prescribed serving size you would have no more than 2-3 small potatoes per person, which is too little for us, so I increased the serving sizes.
