Looking for an upgraded and lighter version of a potato salad for your next cookout? Look no further! We gave the classic potato salad a Mediterranean diet-approved spin by combining roasted potatoes with lots of colorful veggies including tomatoes, corn and spinach. Instead of a traditional mayo-based potato salad dressing, we tossed all of the veggies in a dijon vinaigrette. Yum!
