Red Potato Salad with Minced Vegetables, Hard Boiled Eggs & Old Bay Seasoning

Memorial Day weekend is here! If you are attending or giving a pot luck picnic with everyone contributing a dish, this is always a great one to bring.

Potato salad is served cold so you can make it ahead of time. It goes well with grilled meats and fish and everybody loves it!

I like to put a heathy spin on it by adding lots of crunchy minced vegetables and a light dijon vinaigrette dressing rather than lots of heavy mayonnaise. I also put lots of chopped hard boiled eggs in it to add extra protein. It really is like a main dish for a vegetarian when it is made this way.
