Quick & Healthy Potato Salad
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2  pounds  red potatoes
  • 1  cup  nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/3  cup  minced red onion
  • 1/3  cup  thinly sliced celery
  • 1/4  cup  minced dill pickles plus 1 tablespoon juice from jar
  • 1/2  tablespoon  yellow mustard
  • 1/4  teaspoon  sea salt
  •  Freshly ground pepper to taste
  •  Chopped fresh parsley
Directions

1. Place whole potatoes (do not poke) into microwave-safe dish. Cover dish. (If covering dish with plastic wrap, poke small hole in plastic.) Microwave on HIGH for 10 to 12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave; carefully remove cover from dish due to steam build-up and let cool. Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients; stir well to mix.

2. *Russets, yellow or white potatoes can be substituted, but make sure to peel skins off potatoes after cooking and cooling, but before tossing with remaining ingredients
