Actually Healthy Potato Salad

What’s the secret ingredient in this little potato salad? Well, sit down, kids, and let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time, there lived a Potato. Now, this Potato was a kind and easy-going fellow, and he easily made friends with some other little foods.

Some of his friends were bad apples, though. In particular, that Hot Oil kid was a mean one. But Potato also hung out with some other troublesome characters, like Cheese, Sour Cream, Ranch and literally everything good in life.

Even chocolate. God, literally everything. We can't win.
Even chocolate. God, literally everything. We just can’t win.

One day, as Potato was sitting on the couch, he decided to turn his life around. He realized that his friends were bringing him down, that he was actually good and wholesome at heart. 

A phone call came. It was Mayonnaise on the other line. “Hey, Tato,” the creamy voice said. “Buttermilk and I are playing Salad today. You wanna join?”

This was the pivotal moment. Potato refused, citing eye issues. “No,” he said. “But you guys go ahead.”

Once Mayonnaise hung up, Potato nodded to himself. It was time to change. He picked up the directory and looked up a fellow he had never spoken to before…

Greek Yogurt Potato Salad

Note: This tastes amazingly similar to a regular old potato salad, and it’s just as versatile. You can add in any veggies you’d like—celery, parsley, etc. Make it your own!

Ingredients:

  • 4 (medium or large) Russet potatoes
  • 1 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • pepper + parsley + seasonings of choice

Steps:

Cut the potatoes into reasonably-sized chunks.

Boil them for about 15 minutes or until translucent and tender.

Mmm I love it uh huh uh huh

Keeping the potatoes on the stove, add in the other ingredients. If it’s a little bit liquidy, just keep it on the stove until the extra moisture evaporates.

This baby is perfect for a side dish, a healthy snack, or your contribution to the annual office potluck.

I could live on potatoes. Well not literally live on potatoes; that would be weird.

Although Spongebob did live in a pineapple under the sea. So maybe I could live in a potato on a cloud of cotton candy.

There’s hope yet.
