Colorful Heirloom Potato & Tomato Salad with Eggs and Veggies

Potato salad alway reminds me of summer! It is a great side dish that can accompany a lot of different summer meals – but many times it is overly mayonnaised and does not have many healthy ingredients in it. This potato salad is full of colorful vegetables and is almost a meal in itself!

I love the color and shapes of heirloom tomatoes and potatoes. They add so much color and such interesting shapes to any dish.

    Delicious! Had to improvise a bit. Not much heirloom stuff where I shop, but turned out great anyway!
