Prep: 10 min. Cook: 20 min. + chilling

Instead of using all mayonnaise in the dressing, I used some plain yogurt. It really lightens up the dish and gives it a welcome tang. —Ann Grove, Greenwood, Mississippi

  • 2 pounds medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • Optional toppings: chopped hard-boiled large eggs, blanched green beans and salad croutons


  1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 13-18 minutes or until tender. Drain potatoes; cool completely.
  2. Place potatoes in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, mayonnaise, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper; pour over potatoes and toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled. Sprinkle with parsley; serve with toppings if desired.
