  • 12 ounces round red or small Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges

  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise

  1. In a covered large saucepan, cook potato wedges in enough boiling water to cover for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain well; set aside to cool.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
