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 Points!! 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 Points – 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!!
