Lucky for you, we at Nutrisystem pride ourselves on promoting weight loss with all of our favorite foods. Red Potato Salad is no exception. We’ve created a delicious, guilt-free recipe you can bring along to the next outdoor get-together.

This recipe packs in the protein with a little help from some hard-boiled eggs and is loaded with flavor thanks to the homemade dressing. For the potato salad, boil baby red potatoes for approximately 10-20 minutes (or until tender). Once drained, immerse potatoes in cold water to cool. Leaving the skin on, slice the potatoes. Hard boil two eggs, slice and add to sliced potatoes. Toss together the potatoes, eggs, chopped celery, parsley and chives.
