Guilt-free Grilling: Zesty Dill Potato Salad

Zesty Dill Potato Salad

Potato salad is a beloved tradition at many cookouts, but the classic variety can be tough on your healthy eating plans. Make this flavorful variant instead. Balsamic vinegar and dill give it a snap reminiscent of pickles, but if that’s not your herb of choice, it can easily be made with rosemary, basil or thyme instead for a potato salad you can enjoy time and again.
