WHEN my husband had heart surgery, I had to look for recipes that were nutritious yet tasty. With just a touch of mayonnaise, this potato salad filled the bill. The quantity is just right for the two of us. When I use the microwave to cook the potatoes, I can serve it up in no time. -Martha Campbell, Belton, South Carolina

"About twenty years ago, I read that the way to cut calories was to make your potato salad with half potatoes and half cucumber. Since we had plenty of cucumbers in the garden I tried it and it was delicious. I am a cuke lover and I still make this when I have extra cucumbers.  I'll have to try your recipe. Thanks.
