Zesty Italian Potato Salad

Whole30 Italian Potato Salad A tasty twist on a classic summer side dish! I’m a big fan of traditional potato salad so I’m excited to share this version I created in partnership withPure Flavor greenhouse grown vegetables. It’s packed with flavor, featuring their crunchy Poco Bites Cocktail Cucumbers, juicy Juno Bites Red Grape Tomatoes, tossed in a tangy homemade vinaigrette! These bite size veggies are also a favorite in our house for snacking and dipping. 

This salad is super easy to prep and throw together quickly!

I love the variety of veggies paired with a dose of fresh basil…yum! Our favorite thing to pair it with lately is BBQ or Rotisserie Chicken. It’s a nice alternative to potato salads that have mayo, because it can be kept out at room temp for a longer period of time. Perfect for a Whole30 too, as it’s gluten and dairy free.
