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.

  • Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, onion, mustard, pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, eggs and celery; stir well to coat. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until cold.

Tips

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.

This is amazing!!! I have missed potato salad so much since I started trying to eat better but it is back on the menu now thanks to this recipe! I made it as instructed and it turned out perfectly and no one in my family knew that it was a "healthy" recipe. Read More

This turned out delicious. Instead of steaming the cubed potatoes I bring two pots of water to a boil with a little salt and cook them in one pot for a few minutes to get them clean. When that water gets cloudy I drain it and then add the fresh boiling water--this also takes out some of the sharpness that's in the potato skins. Red onions look nice and I added an extra 1/4 cup of mayonnaise. Apart from these variations this is a good classic recipe. Read More
