Meatless Mondays: Potato Salad With Tomato and Quick-Pickled Red Onion

Jul 11, 2011
Megan Bedard is a sucker for sustainable agriculture and a good farmers market, she likes writing about food almost as much as eating it.

Inspired by Meatless Monday, a campaign encouraging people to cut back on their meat consumption one day a week, TakePart's "Meatless Mondays" will give you every reason you need to skip the steak. By going vegetarian one day a week, you reduce your environmental impact, expand your palate, and improve your health.

A potato salad that's hearty, healthy, and not drowning in mayonnaise? Summer luck is upon us with this recipe by One Hungry Momma.

Stacie, aka Hungry Mama, says the Greek-style recipe is "not fussy or fancy—just simple boiled potatoes, fresh tomatoes and red onion tossed with oil and vinegar." We're sold. You can't beat that with a gallon tub of the goopy stuff from supermarkets.

Never one to forget about the kiddos, Stacie assures us that the vinaigrette is mild even for beginner palates.

What are you waiting for? Get chopping! Find the full recipe here.
