The Best Healthy Potato Salad (Perfect for Summer BBQs!)

Written by Shelby Torrese

Jump To Recipe

It could just be a southern thing, but I think I’ve made every potato salad recipe under the sun. Some are too chunky, some are too thin, some lack flavor, and almost all of them leave me feeling bloated and stuffed. Not a single recipe I’ve found on the internet comes close to my aunt’s famous potato salad recipe. It’s light and fluffy, well-seasoned and just hits the spot. While it’s easily my favorite version of potato salad, it’s not the healthiest. I’d never say that to her face, though, so let’s keep that between us.

Today I’m here to prove that even the best potato salad recipe can be healthified. For the perfect summer BBQ appetizer, keep reading to find out how I turned a heavy potato salad recipe into the most delicious, healthy version around.

How To Make Potato Salad Healthy

I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy to perfect this recipe. The one thing I knew was going to stay the same was including my go to collagen–Unflavored Super Youth. Potato salad recipes aren’t inherently healthy, so when I set out to make a better-for-you version, I knew it would take a few tries.

This turned out to be the best potato salad recipe, ever. It’s super light, contains all the nostalgic flavors of a traditional potato salad, and has my tried and true secret ingredient. The collagen in this recipe adds additional protein, anti-aging benefits, beauty benefits, and more. It’s so easy to add into the recipe because you don’t taste it at all! It’s the #1 thing that makes this recipe healthy.

If you bring this potato salad to your next summer get together, I promise it’s going to be a hit!
