I love that so many of The Recipe ReDux Healthy Potato Salad Challenge (sponsored by The United States Potato Board) recipes have included this beautifully colored mix of red, yellow and blue potatoes. Perfect for Fourth of July – and perfect for tasting the delicious differences between potato varieties. To me, the red potatoes are earthy and an excellent clean slate for lots of flavors; the golden yellow ones are buttery and nutty. And the blue potatoes are just shockingly purple fun for kids to slice into – and taste pure potato – not really earthy or buttery.

With fun flavor nuances like this, I chose a simple dressing to make sure the each different potato could be tasted. Summer always makes me think of sunny Greece where I spent my honeymoon many years ago. So the flavors of lemon, oregano and mint are near and dear to my heart.

  3. Serve salad warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
