We make these family gatherings fun by trying out new recipes. I found a Weight Watcher potato salad recipe that I think is a real winner.

Variations

You can make this potato salad even more colorful by substituting chopped red onions for the scallions. For an even crunchier potato salad, add 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped celery.

I made this potato salad for a covered dish luncheon a few weeks ago. It was a great success and several people asked me for the recipe.
