This is another great alternative to mayo-based potato salad. This potato salad is a combination of a lot of nutritious vegetables namely, potatoes, tomatoes, celery and basil. Garlic, as one of its spices, is proven to regulate blood pressure and control our blood cholesterol levels. Plenty of garlic is used in this recipe, and that’s another reason why this salad is nutritionally good. Further, white vinegar and olive oil is used to dress the salad, added with a little mustard to enhance its flavor. White vinegar is also known to have health benefits, suggested to prevent sudden increase in blood sugar levels. Truly, this potato salad is loaded with nutritional goodness from its ingredients that are mostly Mediterranean. Not only that, it’s also filled with good flavors! Here’s what you need and how to make it.
