Baked Potato Salad

Nothing says summer cookout better than potato salad, but some traditional recipes overload the dish with high calorie ingredients like sour cream and mayonnaise.  This lightened up version has all of the flavor with less than half the fat of other potato salad recipes, so you can feel good about sharing this All-American dish with friends and family.

Baked Potato Salad

2 lbs red potatoes, washed
1 1/4 cup plain fat free Greek Yogurt
2/3 cup Olive Oil Blend Mayonnaise
1/2 cup The Delicious Dietitian White Muscadine Vinegar
2 tsp The Delicious Dietitian Southern All Purpose Spice Blend
1/2 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions, sliced thin

Add potatoes to a large pot of water, bring to a boil.  Cook potatoes until fork tender.  Remove from boiling water and cool.  When cool, cut into 1 inch pieces.

Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and spice blend in a small bowl.  In a large bowl, mix dressing and potatoes.  Stir in cheese and
green onions.  Serve cold or at room temperature.
