Reduced mayo by 2/3 and used Greek yogurt (plain) instead. Came out great. Makes a large amount of salad., so would be good for a bigger group. Added yellow mustard to the leftover portion for variety and that was geat also. Husband is a big potato salad fan and was happy with this coming into our low-fat recipe box.

I love this potato salad! The only thing that I did different was use light Miracle Whip instead of fat free Mayo. I took it to work and everyone wanted the recipe! Great blend of flavors. Will definitely make this again!
