how to make a healthy potato salad

  • To make potato salad healthier, use greek yogurt. Start by making the dressing: mix yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and chopped dill in a bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Boil the potatoes for about 5-8 minutes, depending on the size
  • When the potatoes are done, let them cool; slice the bigger ones in half and toss in the yogurt dressing.
  • Finish the dish with Maldon salt and pepper, and “shower” the salad w/ the herbs
