Dill, parsley, and onion combine with yogurt and sour cream to make a pungent, creamy dressing. Because it travels well, this flavorful potato salad recipe is wonderful for potlucks and picnics.
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
How to Make It
Place potatoes in a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cool slightly and peel. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; cut halves crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place potatoes in a large bowl; sprinkle with vinegar.
Combine yogurt and sour cream in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add oil; stir with a whisk. Add onion and remaining ingredients; stir with a whisk. Add yogurt mixture to potato mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours.
I made this for a 4th of July cookout, and it was a hit. I used 3 #s of red potatoes, 1/4 c. white wine vinegar, 2/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt, 1/3 c. reduced-fat sour cream, 2/3 cup finely chopped red onion, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley + 2 T fresh dill, and salt, pepper, garlic to taste. It yielded a little more and was a perfect combination of flavors. I will be using this again for sure!
I made this for a cookout, and everyone loved it. I appreciate how light it is while still having substance and a lot of flavor. I used dried dill because it is what I had on hand. I also used sweet onion (I prefer it to red) and red potatoes, to give it color. It is now a party/potluck standby.
I have a deeply-rooted fear of mayo, but a great love of potato salad, so this recipe is right up my alley. I just love the extra kick the vinegar gives. I've made it three times, all with either fresh herbs, a combo of fresh and dried, or altogether dried, and it's been superb every time. I like to add another small clove of garlic just for a little extra heat.
