Perfect Potato Salad
Celebrate Oktoberfest in healthy style with this slimmed-down version of a German classic.
JONNY BOWDEN AND JEANNETTE BESSINGER

What’s a picnic without comfort food like potato salad? Our sweet-tart German version replaces the heavy canned mayo of classic potato salad with a tangy shot of apple cider vinegar. As I wrote in The 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth, apple cider vinegar has a long tradition of being used as an all-purpose medicinal food. If you use the organic, less processed version, you’ll be getting a hefty dose of the antioxidants and vitamins found in apples, and the vinegar will help regulate your blood sugar and “alkalize” your system (trust us, that’s a good thing).

Many of the nutrients found in potatoes are concentrated in the skin, so you’ll get some fiber, iron, vitamin C, B6, potassium, manganese, and copper, as well as many beneficial antioxidants. The turkey bacon and eggs add a double dose of protein, which helps balance out the carbs in this filling and satisfying side.

FEATURED INGREDIENT

Apple Cider Vinegar

I included apple cider vinegar in my book, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth because it’s a virtual infusion of healthy minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. In fact, unpasteurized vinegar can contain as many as 50 different nutrients, including those that come from the original “starting” material (in this case, apples).
