Here’s why you’ll love this Greek Yogurt Potato Salad with dill…
Potato salad is such a staple at cookouts, but I honestly avoid it. It’s usually been sitting out for a while, from a package and not that tasty. Not my version though. This Greek Yogurt Potato Salad with dill uses simple fresh ingredients that allow the potatos to shine… not cover them up.
The creamy Greek yogurt is healthy, low in fat and high in protein… way better than mayo. It makes one unforgettable potato salad. Trust me!
I make my healthy potato salad with golden baby potatoes. If you can’t find these, it will also work with baby red potatoes. I love the smooth consistency of the golden cuties though.
The most tedious part of the whole recipe is cutting the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes, but even that doesn’t take that long.
After that, you steam the potatoes in a basket. I steam mine 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. This combo packs a flavor punch without a bunch of mayo.
