My family is invited to a lot of picnics or backyard gatherings during the summer months. 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. My family thinks that it is a great looking dish and it also tastes delicious.

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.
