  • 6 medium red potatoes about 2 pounds or use an assortment of colors for added interest
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • cup diced celery
  • 1 2 ounce jar diced pimiento, drained
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise I only use Best Foods when it comes to low-fat mayo, all the others I find to be way too thin
  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt regular or greek
  • ¼ cup low-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Fresh chopped parsley optional
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Cut the potatoes in ½ inch pieces; place in a medium saucepan; cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 - 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool. Combine the potato, onion, celery, and pimento into a bowl and toss gently. Combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, sour cream, mustard, and vinegar. Mix well; then add to the potato mixture, tossing gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • LindySez: The last time I made this, I didn't have either yogurt or sour cream so I used ⅓ cup of the mayonnaise along with ¼ cup 2% buttermilk. It was a great substitution.


All potato salads benefit with at least an hour in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend.
