We have just a few days until the 4th of July.  The 4th falls on a Monday this year, and you know what that means… three day weekend!! Woot-woot!

Do you have big plans? Do you go to the local parade, or a pool party or a backyard BBQ?  We have never made it to our local parade, we’re just not big parade people, but we always hit the pool a local BBQ {or have our own BBQ party} and we always drive to watch the fireworks.

My hubby and boys love fireworks, the bigger, the badder, the louder, the better.  For years we would let off our own fireworks, and by we I mean my husband and his lunatic friends.  Let me just say my husband and his friends only become lunatics when they get around fireworks.  What is it with men and fireworks?  They become slobbering ninnies when the thought of lighting something on fire and making it explode enters their orbit. ugghh!

I am happy to say that my husband has retired from his firework career and now leaves it to the professionals.

One thing we have not retired is eating tons of great BBQ food all weekend long during the 4th.

If you follow me here on A Healthy Life For Me, you know I love coming up with healthy side dishes.   One of my favorite summer BBQ foods, since I was a little girl, was Potato Salad.  My Mom use to make a classic potato salad with potatoes, eggs, and lots of mayonnaise.  Though it might taste great, it was loaded with calories and wasn’t the healthiest choice.  Working with The Christ Hospital I came up with this healthier version of the classic Potato Salad. Make sure you pop on over to their Healthspiration page and check out some wonderful recipe and healthy living tips.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS RED WHITE BLUE POTATO EGG SALAD.

This salad is made with clean, simple ingredients but isn’t lacking on flavor.  I used a fingerling potato medley, but any potato medley would work, or small new potatoes.  The medley gives it a nice play of color, especially for the 4th of July holiday.  Topped with a flavorful mustard vinaigrette, fresh herbs and a bit of spices gives this dish a great tang.  You can make up to a day ahead covered and stored in the refrigerator.
