Golden Potato Salad With Creamy Harvest Dressing

Toss together a healthful, low-fat potato salad with mouth-watering golden potatoes, onion, celery and bacon. The creamy, yet fat-free dressing is mostly nutrient-rich fruit and veggies, too. In fact, the dressing gets its non-fat creaminess from puréed, vitamin A-rich canned sweet potatoes.
