Seems everyone loves a good potato salad and there are as many variations as there are cooks. Here are a couple of recipes if you want to try something new the next time you make potato salad. Sour Cream Red Potato salad combines sour cream with mayonnaise. The green onions and radishes add color as well as flavor, the celery adds crunch, and the eggs add protein for all the diabetics out there. The old-fashion recipe for Served Hot Potato Salad is also one diabetics can enjoy. The Velveeta cheese and bacon also add protein making this dish okay for diabetics, too.
