I’ve been thinking about potato salad all day. I boiled potatoes yesterday to have on hand as ingredients for breakfast and lunch for the hubby and I had hard boiled eggs. Every time I opened the refrigerator they just insisted on being made into something yummy. We’re not huge mayo fans here so I had to scour the refrigerator and finally found a tiny bottle in the back and I was set.
Can you make this lighter? Sure, use light mayo instead of regular and non-fat yogurt instead of low fat. You could also change the yogurt to mayo ratio from 1 to 1 to 1-1/2 to 1/2; but 1:1 was pretty darn perfect. You could also split this into two servings, but I ate this for dinner and it was just the right size.
Did the yogurt change the taste? Nope, I really couldn’t taste it at all which was perfect. For a change, add herbs to add some new flavors. Sorry for the crummy photos. I decided to do this at 10pm with leftovers in the fridge and a camera with almost dead batteries.

Super easy and so delicious! I use vegetarian yogurt (uses pectin instead of gelatin), but Greek Yoghurt would work just as well. It makes an even creamier consistency.
