Golden Potato Salad with Creamy Harvest Dressing

This Easter, try this new twist on a yummy side dish. This Golden Garden Potato Salad is both delicious and nutritious with just one gram of fat per serving.

Potato Salad With Harvest DressingThis rich, creamy dressing doesn’t have a smidgen of fat, and yet it is rich enough to flavor a potato salad or lacquer an entrée of pan-roasted seafood. A 3-tablespoon portion delivers only about 50 calories.


For the Creamy Harvest Dressing:

  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) sweet potatoes or yams in light syrup, drained
  • 1 slice yellow onion, 1/2-inch thick
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley

For the salad:

  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, washed, cut in 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked crisp, fat drained and crumbled


  1. To make the dressing, purée all of the dressing ingredients, except for the parsley, in a blender or food processor until smooth; stir in the parsley.
  2. Boil the potatoes in a large pot of lightly salted water until tender, about 15 minutes; drain.
  3. While still hot toss the potatoes, onion, celery, bacon and dressing; set aside to cool.
