Ingredients

  • One 3-pound bag baby red potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup chopped red onion
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chives
  • 1/3 Cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/3 Cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Scrub the potatoes and place them in a pot. Cover them with cold water and bring to a boil. Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 12 minutes. Remove the pot from heat, drain the potatoes, and rinse with cold water. Cool the potatoes in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Remove the potatoes from the refrigerator and coarsley chop into bite-size chunks, leaving the skin on. Place them in a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and serve. 

Potato Salad Shopping Tip

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Potato Salad Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.

Potato Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
