This creamy potato salad made with rainbow potatoes, celery, pickles, and dill is lightened up using half mayonnaise, half yogurt. Perfect for picnics and backyard parties all summer long

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds multi-color baby potatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil mayonnaise, or light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 ½ teaspoon fresh dill
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 dill pickle spear, finely chopped
  • 1 medium celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2 small green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pickle juice

Instructions

  • Place potatoes in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Boil for 10-15 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, 1 teaspoon dill, pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, set aside half. Peel the other half by gently pinching the skin and pulling it away. Place peeled potatoes in a medium bowl and mash with a potato masher. Dice the remaining potatoes into 1-inch cubes and add to the bowl with the mashed potatoes.
  • Add pickle, celery, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, and all but 1 tablespoon of the green onion. Add the yogurt mixture and pickle juice to the potatoes and toss gently to evenly coat. Garnish with remaining dill and green onion.

  1. Huge hit in our house! So fresh and delicious!

  2. A huge hit with my family. Paired perfectly with the Juicy Turkey Burgers with Zucchini suggested in the mail plan. Loved the combination of mashed and quartered potatoes, it gave it a very unique texture. Followed the directions exactly as written, no alterations needed.

  3. LOVE this yummy recipe. The addition of pickles adds a welcome flavor, and mashing some of the potatoes make it seem so much more creamy. So good!
