In the meantime here’s one to serve this weekend with whatever protein is gracing your grill. This Quick Classic Potato Salad serves up rich flavor, without the expected calories. This recipe is fat-free (by using non-fat plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise) with lots of crunch and wholesome flavor.
QUICK & HEALTHY CLASSIC POTATO SALAD
1 ½ pounds red, Russets, yellow or white potatoes
1 c non-fat plain yogurt
1/3 c minced red onion
1/3 c thinly sliced celery
1/4 c minced dill pickles plus 1 T juice from jar
1/2 T yellow mustard
1/4 t sea salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Chopped fresh parsley
Place whole potatoes (do not poke) into microwave-safe dish. Cover dish. (If covering dish with plastic wrap, poke small hole in plastic). Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave; carefully remove cover from dish due to steam build-up and let cool. Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients; stir well to mix.This salad may be served right away, but is best if refrigerated for at least one hour to allow flavors to blend.
Makes 4 servings.
