Compare the two potato salad recipes. This recipe using the olive oil is almost all monounsaturated fat where the Red Potato Salad using the mayonnaise does have some saturated fat. Both great recipes and both low in fat but the fats are different.
For potato salads choosing a waxy potato like red potatoes or Yukon Golds will work best (see Potatoes). After cooking they are not as flakey and hold together better.

|1 1/2 lbs||small red potatoes|
|2 Tbsp||red wine vinegar|
