Gear up for summertime gatherings, picnics, and poolside hangs with this light and fresh spin on classic potato salad. We know you want recipes that are easy to prepare and take minimal time in the kitchen while also delivering tons of flavor in a healthy way. Think that's asking too much? Not a chance! That's why we're excited to share this recipe from our friends at Klondike Brands by Green Giant™ Fresh – Potato and Asparagus Salad.

The stars of this recipe are these KlondikePetite® Red Potatoes and they are the perfect potato for this dish – they may be small in size but they are big in flavor. The rosy red skin is super thin so you don't have to peel them before you cook and the yellow flesh is creamy and buttery when cooked. Pair these precious potatoes with crispy asparagus, homemade tangy dijon mustard dressing, pungent parmesan cheese (if you so desire), and you have a proper side dish fit for any potluck.
