“In this healthy and creamy potato salad recipe, yogurt replaces half of the mayo and we keep the potato skins on for more fiber and potassium. To hard-boil the eggs while your potatoes are steaming, place them directly on top of the potatoes in the steamer basket. They'll be perfectly hard-boiled when the potatoes are tender.”


    • 2½ pounds yellow or red potatoes, scrubbed and diced ( ½- to 1-inch)
    • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ½ cup mayonnaise
    • ½ cup low-fat plain yogurt
    • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
    • 1 cup chopped celery


  • 1 Bring 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan (or pot) fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt; let cool 15 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, onion, mustard, pepper and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, eggs and celery; stir well to coat. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until cold.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
