Greek Yogurt Potato Salad

It’s Summer. It’s Hot.  One of the hottest we’ve had in a long time, so when Jen from Juanita’s Cocina suggested a Beat the Heat #SundaySupper, I was all over it! I thought it was a great idea and apparently so did everyone else in the #SundaySupper Movement Group.  I am so honored, this week we have the highest number of Food Bloggers Participating …  55 participants!  Seriously, can you believe it?  I am so thrilled and immediately thought of the Greek Yogurt Potato Salad I recently had at my friend Charles’ house.  I loved it because it was so creamy and didn’t have mayonnaise, instead it was made with greek yogurt and sour cream.

When my kids loved it, I knew I had to share this great recipe with all of you. They are not big potato salad or mayo lovers but this potato salad got raving reviews.   Something else that I love, you can boil or grill the red potatoes.  So if you don’t want to be hot in the kitchen, Beat the Heat and Grill out!

I haven’t been making potato salad much lately – for some reason, mayo turns me off these days. Love that you used Greek yogurt instead!

Love this recipe Isabel – it looks so great! I am such a huge fan of salads like this. Thank you so much for sharing!

I made a potato salad with Greek yogurt recently. Those that love mayo (like my mom) and those that hate it (like me) all loved it! Love your addition of artichokes.

Artichokes are delicious, Isabel, and this salad looks amazing! Thank you for inviting me to participate in Sunday Supper each week! It’s a blast!

Yay, potato salad without mayo. I’m not a big fan of mayo, either. This salad looks amazing. Happy #SundaySupper, Isabel.
