Today's recipe is one that my Mom used to make all the time. I especially remember one Summer where she made it on a almost weekly basis. :)
The thing that I love about this dish, besides the fresh flavors, is that it can be either served hot or chilled so it's super versatile for either picnics or a home-cooked meal.
Take small red potatoes. Chop them into quarters. Place the potatoes into a pot of boiling water. Boil until fork-tender.
While your potatoes are boiling, slice up green onions, dill and grab your Yoplait greek yogurt (plain flavored) out of the fridge.
Drain potatoes. Add greek yogurt and 1 tbsp. of butter to the potatoes. Using a potato smasher, roughly smash them up. Not so much that they're mashed potatoes, we want to keep it with the texture of a potato salad.
Add in dill, green onions, black pepper, and the zest of one lemon. Stir it all together
I love this healthy and fresh version of potato salad.
