COOKING WITH CLORIS -- POTATO SALAD REDUX



Are you starting to stash zucchini in your neighbors’ mailboxes after dark? The zucchini is begin to come in fast and furiously. Never fear. Cloris has another great potato salad recipe today, also low-fat, and best of all, it includes zucchini. -- AP

LOW-FAT ZUCCHINI POTATO SALAD
Ingredients:
1-1/2 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 T. coarse ground mustard
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 T dried, minced onion
1 teas. dry dill weed

Clean and cook potatoes, cutting into halves or quarters, depending on size. Allow to cool. In a separate bowl combine mustard, sour cream, mayonnaise, onion, and dill. Add chopped zucchini to potatoes. Add remaining ingredients, blending well. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Thanks, Cloris, I’m sure our readers will enjoy this marvelous side dish. I know I did when you made it for me. What about the rest of you? Have any side dishes you'd like to tell us about? Our Book Club Friday guest author this week is giving away a copy of one of her books. To be entered in the drawing, all you have to do is post a comment to the blog this week. -- AP

Wow! what a great sounding recipe, especially for those of us who need to count our calories.
I can't wait to try it and share it with my friends. Anymore?

Storidiva, we have recipes from Cloris every Tuesday, and many of them are low-fat and/or low calorie except for some of her to-die-for desserts. Check out the archives.

Interesting recipe. I would have never thought to add zuchini to potato salad. I bet it is pretty as well as good tasting.

Thanks.
