Mayo-less Potato Salad

Hooray for summer! It’s grilling, potluck-ing, picnic-ing season! The time for cold, creamy “salads” and barbeque. Mmmmm.

I stumbled on this potato salad recipe with pickles & fresh dill a while back and decided to give it a go with some nonfat, thick Greek yogurt (my go-to for anything that requires mayo, sour cream, or even half & half). It’s so yummy, my 8-year-old Big Brothers Big Sisters “little” loved it and it’s so easy, she pretty much made it herself.

With the addition of Greek yogurt, this actually has a decent amount of protein and could stand alone for a quick lunch. Of course, it’s also awesome next to anything off the grill or at a potluck.

How about you guys? Are you as pumped as I am for eating outdoors? Any favorite barbeque/potluck dishes or twists on old favorites?

Ingredients (serves 5-6 as a side):

  • 1 lb red-skin potatoes
  • 2-3 dill pickle spears, coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1-2 hard boiled eggs, peeled & chopped
  • 1/3 c nonfat thick Greek yogurt (my fave is Fage)
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • a couple/few tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • salt & pepper


  1. Boil the potatoes until fork-tender. Let cool in the fridge.
  2. When the potatoes are cooled-through, cut into bite-sized chunks, mix with everything else.
  3. Serve cold. Enjoy!

  1. Mayo is not popular in my house, so I usually have to forego things like potato salad (much to my disappointment). So, yayy for this – something I can try! Also – I’m SUPER PUMPED for grilling season!

  2. So pumped for grilling season. Although even in the winter we somehow manage to grill at least once a week. Right now, planning a party for a whole hog. I need to find some great healthy sides that would go along with the artery clog that is pulled pork.
