Mediterranean Potato Salad

Mediterranean Potato Salad


"Here's a salad with loads of disease-fighting antioxidants in the potatoes, tomatoes, onions, basil, garlic and olive oil. True, white potatoes tend to boost blood sugar, but the vinegar in this recipe helps to suppress such rises, making this a healthful salad."
