Our next recipe for National Potato Lover’s Month is our healthiest yet! With tons of nutritional value, this kale and potato salad is the perfect side dish to compliment any entree (or, if you’re vegetarian, it could make its own meal!). We’ve also found that cooking with fat-free Greek yogurt makes everything a little healthier.
Hope you enjoy this delectable potato dish! Stay tuned for more potato recipes throughout the month of February. If you make any of the recipes we post, send us a tweet @FoodCity with the tag #PotatoLover and let us know how it turned out!

Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in upper third of oven.
Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil, half the shallots, salt and pepper and spread evenly on a
