One of the best and easiest ways to make any potato salad "heart healthy" is to make your own mayonnaise. You get the heart benefits of extra-virgin olive oil and skip the harmful vegetable oils used in most commercial mayonnaise. Using an organic egg in this recipe will also increase the omega-3 content of your food.
