Heart-Healthy Idaho® Potato Salad

A recent survey revealed that Idaho® potatoes are America’s favorite vegetable, beating out broccoli, corn and leafy greens. We’re not surprised at all! Idaho® potatoes are delicious, versatile and certified by the American Heart Association as a heart-healthy food. And since February is American Heart Month, we made a few tweaks to our popular Traditional Idaho® Potato Salad recipe to make it a Heart-Healthy Idaho® Potato Salad. It’s easy when your main ingredient is heart-healthy Idaho® potatoes! A combination of whole hard boiled eggs and egg whites, a 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, plain non-fat Greek yogurt, chopped onions and pickles, and a dash of garlic powder makes this a delicious and healthy dish. Easy peasy!

Miso Ramen with Spiraled
Idaho® Potatoes

A grown-up take on instant ramen, Miso Ramen with Spiraled Idaho® Potatoes is a savory and paleo-friendly recipe. For a nutritional boost it uses spiralized Idaho® potatoes instead of traditional noodles along with ginger, miso paste, ground pork, and toasted sesame seeds. Want a more classic style? Add toppings like boiled eggs or dried seaweed. It’s destined to be a new winter favorite with family and friends and bring out smiles all around the table.
