Looking to use up some leftover sides? Potatoes are easy to re-purpose into a delicious hearty potato salad!
Healthy food doesn’t need to be complicated and this is a perfect example of how a few minutes can turn dreary cooked potatoes into a sensational savory salad!
Take last night’s leftover baked potatoes and chop them up into bite sized pieces. I like to leave the skin on for extra fiber and nutrients. Jazz them up with chopped celery, fresh or frozen peas, and a sprinkle of chopped scallions. Add in additional vegetables for colour, nutrition and flavour! Some of my favorite add-ins for potato salad include grated carrot, sliced bell peppers, chopped green beans, finely chopped purple cabbage or Lacinato kale.
