Going to a BBQ on Memorial Day and need a recipe that you want to enjoy without looking like the “diet girl”? This dish is cheap to make, serves over 12+ people, and tastes like an all-American classic dish with a slight twist. Play with the ingredients!

3 lbs of Red Potatoes
2 Sweet Potatoes
2 Stalks of Celery
1 Small Vidalia Onion (chopped finely)
1/3 cup Fresh Chopped Herbs like Parsley
1/3 cup Mayonnaise (Use Vegannaise if you wish, or even Light Mayo)
1/3 cup Sour Cream (again, use low fat sour cream or greek yogurt, whatever is on sale or in your kitchen)
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp Cayenne
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wash and scrub potatoes. Peel red potatoes if you like. Place into a pot, fill with water (add salt), cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the potatoes are to a consistency of your liking (I like them well done).
Drain water, chop red potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Chop sweet potatoes intro smaller cubes, think 1/4-1/2 inch. While water is coming to a boil, finely chop onion, celery, and chives.
Add in remainder of ingredients. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving (or longer, you can make this a day ahead.) Add more or less paprika, and cayenne, depending on your preferences!
