Potato in a salad is a very weird combination but this dish filled with aromas and flavors is going to change your mind. Rejuvenate your tastebuds with this impeccable salad. Not too healthy but definitely very tasty. The reason potatoes have a bad rap, at least in part, is because they have a high glycemic load and raise your blood sugar significantly when eaten on their own. A blood sugar spike is something you want to avoid. Constantly putting your blood sugar on a roller coaster from high glycemic foods is associated with weight gain, obesity, diabetes, and inflammation.
