Summer’s definitely not complete without making and enjoying this classic potato salad side dish. Our version features buttery Yukon Gold potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and a splash of vinegar for extra flavor and brightness. We replaced a large amount of regular mayonnaise with some fat-free mayonnaise as well as creamy non-fat Greek-style yogurt. After you've made it, feel free to garnish with some chopped dill, red onion, and/or chives for a touch of color and extra texture. Also, for a change of pace, you can substitute 1-inch red potato chunks for the Yukon Gold potatoes. The possibilities are truly endless with this versatile recipe.
