GREEK YOGURT DILL POTATO SALAD
This salad is light and refreshing! I get lots of emails from folks who want a lighter and healthier alternative to potato salad. Basically, folks want an option other than mayo. I can respect that. Personally I adore a good mayo-laden potato salad. But for many folks who are looking for lighter, healthier (but still tasty!) options, there aren't always a whole lot of reliable recipes. So, I played around with and tested out a few recipes.

I’m back to make this for the 4th or 5th time in a matter of weeks! So so good and especially perfect for me because I dislike mayonnaise. Finally a potato salad I can enjoy!!
Wow this is fabulous!!! I am not a fan of Mayo and can’t stomach regular potato salad. This is absolutely delicious and so easy to throw together. Just made it for the second time this week!
