Green Bean & Potato Salad – 4 Points +

Green Bean & Potato Salad

When I saw this recipe, I just had to try it. Life in the Midwest includes a lot of potatoes, and right now the green beans are fresh from the garden. It’s a perfect time to try this salad, and this salad is wonderful. The tart vinegar combined with the potatoes and green beans is perfect. The potatoes and green beans are tender, but still crisp enough to provide some texture. This salad is sure to be at hit at your next family dinner, barbecue or potluck.

I’ve been on a Paula Deen kick lately….I just cannot get enough of her delicious, homemade Southern Recipes!! But being a Weight Watcher, there’s no way I could eat her food without consuming almost all of my daily PointsPlus Allowance in one serving. So, I enjoy experimenting with healthier versions of her recipes which allows me all the flavor of the South, but with a LOT less fat and calories. One of my favorite low calorie salad recipes that I want to share today, is a slimmed down version of Paula Deen’s Country Potato Salad. Just by making a few small changes, I created a version that has just 3 Points + per 1 cup serving!! This one is definitely a keeper for summer BBQ parties and potluck picnics! It’d be a great WW Memorial Day Recipe to either serve at your celebration or to take along with you! That way you know you’ve got at least one healthy side dish option to indulge in. Enjoy!

Low Calorie Potato Salad Recipe – 2 Point Total

Sorry for the delay on the posting of new recipes, folks! For the past week, I’ve been having Internet connection issues (gotta love AT &T). And I think it’s resolved….at least for now. So while I’ve got my connection, on with today’s post!!
Now that summer is in full swing, it seems like there are pool parties, BBQ’s, birthday parties, picnics, and endless opportunities for good eats. In my quest to stay on track with my Weight Watchers goals, I always offer to bring a side dish that I can make and keep low in Points. It’s my go to dish that I can count on so that I know exactly how many Points I’m eating. Well, one of my all time favorite summer BBQ recipes is this fabulously low calorie potato salad. Each 3/4 cup serving has just a 2 Point Total!! Which is great because I almost never have 3/4 cup of anything, which is how I got myself into Weight Watchers to begin with! So I can have 2 servings for just a 5 Point Total – it’s so good, I feel like I’ve indulged, but in actuality, 5 Points isn’t so bad to spend on a very nice sized serving of potato salad. What I also love about this popular side dish recipe, is that it tastes GREAT!! So even the non Weight Watchers eating it will enjoy it. Though this isn’t an official Weight Watchers Potato Salad Recipe, anyone watching what they eat will definitely appreciate this one. Dig in!!
