This is a creamy delicious potato salad that is full of flavor and good-for-you ingredients.
Red Potato: Good source of Vitamin C, Fiber and Vitamin B6 which is beneficial for cardiovascular health and brain and nervous system function. Warning: Buy ORGANIC! The average, conventionally grown, a potato has more pesticide residue per weight than any other vegetable. See the latest “Dirty Dozen” list, here.
Red Onion: Excellent source of cancer-fighting free radicals. Onion has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Red onions are also rich in chromium. Chromium helps control glucose levels.
Parsley: the volatile oils in parsley have been shown to inhibit tumor formation and neutralize particular types of carcinogens including those in cigarette smoke and charcoal grill smoke.
Greek-Style Yogurt: Choose organic, plain, full-fat yogurt from cow milk or coconut.
Flax Seeds: High in Essential Omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats are beneficial to heart health. Whole flax seeds and red onions are an excellent source of prebiotic fiber.
