Helpful Hints:

Here's a potato salad you can make ahead and serve with confidence at your next backyard barbecue. It's dressed with a canola oil vinaigrette, which cuts the fat and the worry that comes from using mayonnaise.

Your family and friends will really appreciate the smooth texture and kicked-up flavour added to this southwestern style potato salad. But best of all, you can spend time enjoying the meal instead of worrying about the effect of sun and heat on your potato salad.

Bonus: The canola oil you mix with tangy lime juice is lowest in saturated fat and also, it's trans fat-free, high in monounsaturated fats, and is a good vegetable source of omega–3. It's Good for Every Body.
