Green Bean Potato Salad

Green Bean Potato Salad by Custom Taste

Like I have previously mentioned, my husband loves pasta salad, but recently I started thinking about potato salad. Potatoes are said to be better for you than pasta mainly because they have less carbs and more nutrients. So I decided to make a potato salad, a healthy one that is! Omit the eggs and mayo and you can get something filling, nutritious and satisfying! It will be all the rage this summer at the family BBQs.
