Greek Potato Salad



I've been teasing you with this photo for far too long ;) 
Here's the recipe!

Greek Potato Salad
Makes one serving and can easily be doubled or quadrupled to feed a pair or even a smorgasbord of guests =)  Food is oh-so flexible.  Don't you love it?

What's in it?
3 small/medium golden potatoes or red potatoes, cubed
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
1-2 Tbsp onion, minced
1-2 Tbsp diced cucumber [optional]
2-3 Tbsp plain greek yogurt [I used chobani]
dried dill, salt, + garlic powder, to taste
Garnish with a lemon wedge to add a splash of citrus to your salad

Get Cooking!
Boil cubed potatoes for approximately 10-15 minutes, until fork tender.  Season the yogurt with garlic, dill, and a teeny bit of salt and stir into potatoes to coat.  Pop in the fridge for a bit and enjoy cool.


So... How was it? 
Light, refreshing, and utterly delicious; I seriously may never use mayo again!  The greek yogurt was a perfect match for the fluffy potatoes.  Add a little dill and lemon juice and viola!  Perfection =)

  7. This looks great! Potato salad will always remind me of my grandmother and summertime. I could use this same recipe, but use a mustard instead of the yogurt to make it dairy-free. Delish.

    I find that using Greek yogurt is such a tasty substitute for mayo or sour cream.
