Recipe :: An old and new(healthy) twist on potato salad | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


One of my favorite holiday dishes is an old potato salad recipe that my grandmother used to make. Knowing my grandmother, it’s probably not a very healthy recipe. This year my mom and I decided we would try our hand at it and try to make it a bit more healthy because being able to enjoy all of your favorites in a healthy way is a big thing for me. So, here we go:

Keep in mind, this a recipe from my grandmother, so you kind of just throw things together.

Here is what you’ll need (per my mom):

5 large potatoes diced and cooked

2 cups of cabbage grated

1/4 cup of dill pickle diced

1 1/2 cup of ham diced

1 onion dice (optional)

Mix potatoes, cabbage, ham, pickle and onion.


1 cup of mayo

2 tablespoons of vinegar

1 teaspoon dill seed

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

Mix, then mix and toss over potato mixture.

Mom, how did you make this healthier?

I used low sodium ham (the original recipe calls for SPAM). I also used light mayo.

And that’s it, folks! One of my favorite holiday recipes in a healthier way! Enjoy!
