Quick Potato Salad for One

The key to great potato salad is to gently toss the potatoes with dressing while the potatoes are still warm - this allows for better absorption of flavors.


  • 1 large Idaho Potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon diced pimiento
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place cubed potato in a 9-inch square microwave-safe baking dish; cover and microwave at HIGH 4 to 5 minutes, or until potato is tender.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, pimiento, onion, relish, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl, stirring well. Add to potatoes, tossing gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate until cool.
