We like it on the light side , however, making it for a crowd, use regular mayo, they will think it is potato salad until they've taken a couple of bites. Light mayo reduces the calories, we just use the fat free ranch. Better yet, make your own, with fat free mayo, sour cream and seasoning. Want to get crazy, throw in some Feta cheese, there is low fat for that too. My point, you can fluff it to your liking if my favorite didn't work for you. No matter what, ENJOY!!
