Hi friends!

Thank you for all your kind comments about yesterdays post.  I’m actually feeling so much better right now.  Sometimes it really helps me to just write it down like that and then move on.  It’s also good to hear that we all are fighting similar battles.

On a positive note, I’m in full time summer mode now.  The hubs and I have already been grilling out in the evenings occasionally and it’s been spectacular!

On the menu: lighter versions of my favorite summer foods.  I’ve been doing some trial and error to get some super yummy summer food posts ready for you.

My first finished product is this Greek yogurt potato salad.  It’s packed with dill and has just a hint of grainy mustard .

I love a simple and classic potato salad, so I kept this version pretty simple and just made it healthier.

I also love keeping food simple in the summer, focusing on fresh, high quality ingredients.

I make my healthy potato salad with these golden baby potatoes.  If you can’t find these, it will also work with baby red potatoes.  I love the smooth consistency of these cuties though.

The most tedious part of the whole recipe is cutting the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes.

After that you steam them in a basket.  I steam them instead of boiling them so they retain more nutrients.

Once the potatoes are cool, you toss with greek yogurt, dill and mustard.  I brighten the flavor with lemon and a touch of onion powder.

The Greek yogurt is healthy, low in fat and high in protein.   And it makes one unforgettable potato salad!  Trust me!

    GREAT recipe! Very light, tasty and satisfying. I added some chopped celery for a little crunch. This will definitely go on my “make again” list.

      That sounds like a wonderful idea! So glad you enjoyed it.

    Mayonnaise. I like the flavor with just a little bit of mayonnaise added; however you can omit the mayo altogether, if you prefer. Apple cider vinegar. A touch of acid enhances the flavor of the salad. You may also use regular white vinegar or white wine vinegar.

    Made this last night. Good except too much dill. I am pretty sure it is because I didn’t use fresh? I only had dry so I didn’t see any issue. Wrong. I’m going to try again with fresh dill as indicated. Should be good. I really liked the greek yogurt instead of mayo.

      Hi Christine! Yes, if you sub dry for fresh you need to reduce the amount. A general rule of thumb is 1 teaspoon dry equals 1 TABLESPOON fresh. So for this recipe I’d use 2 teaspoons. But since you are trying it in a new way… I’d start with 1 1/2 and taste it :-)) See if you like/want more.
      I love the fresh dill in this though– totally worth getting!
      Thanks for making my recipe and leaving a comment!

    Yay! Healthy potato salad!!! It’s always something I steer away from at a BBQ because of all the mayo, but this is genius 🙂

    This recipe speaks wonders to my mayo-hating self (though I have to admit that I’m slowly getting more into it…why?!). And fresh dill is pretty much the best thing ever – nice work on incorporating that in here, too!

    Wow, does this look amazing! Dill is one of my favorite herbs (right after cilantro) so I’ll have to try it out. I just happen to have all the ingredients on hand, so sounds like a perfect thing to make tonight!
