simple potato salad

i had leftover boiled potatoes and it is summer so potato salad time
i find mayo to be kind of heavy so i do a bit of a cheat to get the creamy potato salad flavour

this is how i made my potato salad this time around (yum!)

6 medium sized boiled potatoes - skins off and cubed
2 spring onions chopped
5 eggs boiled, peeled and chopped
1 cup low cal ranch dressing
2 tbsp prepared mustard (was out of plain dijon and this worked really well
3 dashes of paprika
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/8tsp fresh ground pepper
3 tbsp fresh basil from the garden - chopped

eggs on the boil, and then all the ingredients together...

refrigerate for at least a few hours, and overnight is even better. i find that ranch dressing gives the creaminess of mayo without the heaviness of it.
