Potato salads are quintessential summertime food, making appearances at potlucks, barbecues and picnics all season long. For years I didn’t even realize that there was such a thing as non-mayo potato salad, like this this Mediterranean potato salad. I’ll definitely stop for this version. With no mayo in sight and a variety of veggies, this is no boring potato salad. Red onions, green beans, eggplant and zucchini are all roasted in the oven with just a touch of garlic to make them tender and flavorful. Move over, mayo. There’s a new potato salad in town. I usually use fingerling potatoes since I find them adorable and grab them whenever I see them. But you could use whatever potatoes you like for this Mediterranean potato salad! While the potatoes are boiling, whisk together a simple vinaigrette. Be sure to add the dressing to the potatoes and veggies while still hot so they really soak up the flavor. Fresh herbs are the finishing touch. Potato salad gets better as it sits, so if you can hold off from digging in right away you’ll definitely be rewarded.

Taking care of your teeth is important, especially if you lie to your dentist about flossing. Which everyone does… except me. I floss all the time… ok no, I don’t, not all the time at least! That’s probably why my longtime dentist dr.

But did you know that sour foods are usually worse than sugary ones? If you did, you still won’t be able to guess what “food” you will find at number one. Read on to learn which are the 10 10 worst foods for your teeth, and why. Your dentist will thank you, no doubt about it.
