clean potato salad

I love potato salad, but it's not the best thing for you. All that yummy goodness is loaded with mayo and an unnecessary amount of calories. Blech! I was checking out Clean Eating Magazine for some new recipes, and thankfully found this heaven-sent recipe. Potato salad for the clean eater. Check it out..

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup peas, fresh or frozen
  • 30 baby red potatoes, scrubbed well and halved (about 4 cups)
  • 4 red celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 8 radishes, halved and sliced into thin semi-circles
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
DRESSING
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground white pepper
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and grated
  • 1 shallot, peeled and grated

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add peas and cook for about 4 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and set aside to cool.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook, covered, until a knife easily pierces through, about 10 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until well blended.
  4. In a separate large bowl, toss potatoes, celery, radishes and dressing. Add peas and mint last to avoid bruising, and coat evenly. Serve.
