Vegetable and potato salad upgrades the traditional potato salad to have delicious Mediterranean flavours. This veggie potato salad is made with courgettes, new potatoes and delicious sun-drenched tomatoes. We recommend cooking the courgettes on the BBQ as it gives a great chargrilled flavour and makes this potato salad the perfect BBQ side, as you can make it once you’ve got the BBQ going. Plus, it’s under 200 calories a portion!
