This potato salad uses peas, onions, and celery for a bright crunch and a base that includes plain yogurt for a light, zesty flavor.

Ingredients

  • 3 potatoes (medium)
  • 1 cup celery (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup onion (minced)
  • 1 cup peas (frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (prepared)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, low-fat
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, non-fat plain
  • black pepper (fresh cracked, to taste)
  • lettuce and tomato (Garnish, optional)

Directions

1. Wash potatoes, leave skin on and cut in bite-size chunks.
2. Place in pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower to simmer and cook uncovered until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
3. Drain in colander and sprinkle lightly with cold water.
4. In the mean time, put the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Drain potatoes well and add to the bowl.
5. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.
6. Garnish with fresh lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
