With summer BBQ season underway and the ultimate BBQ holiday just days away, Americans across the country have pronounced potato salad their No. 1 pick among healthy BBQ side dishes. According to a poll on CookingLight.com, potato salad is the favorite healthy summer side, surpassing other traditional sides like coleslaw, pasta salad and baked beans.
How can something so delicious also be so packed with nutrition? It’s the potato, of course! At just 110 calories, the base of America’s favorite vegetable side dish is packed with essential vitamins and minerals. One medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on potato boasts more potassium than a banana and almost half your daily value of vitamin C (45%), and absolutely no fat, sodium or cholesterol.
