This is a deliciously creamy yet low-fat potato salad. The french dressing plus the mayo and yogurt adds some tang and colour to the salad. I have never felt the need to add any salt to this recipe. Plan ahead, this salad needs 2x4 hours chill time. NOTE: If you choose to use the whole eggs instead of egg whites the fat content of this salad will increase. It is also nice to use the 3 or 4 egg whites and then use one sliced whole egg as a decorative topping.

- 1⁄4 cup low-fat French dressing (the bottled kind)

I followed the recipe exactly except for leaving out the radishes since our son does not like radishes. This was excellent. My husband is addicted to potatoe salad so I thought I would find a healthier version of his favorite high fat salad. He loves this one just as much and our son loves it too. Thank you for posting this wonderful healthier recipe!
Now mine didn't come out like the pic since i changed the recepie to suit 5ppl. I didn't have radishes and added 8 strips of bacon diced and cooked to salad. Ya i know its suppose to be lowfat and it still is but you gotta have bacon! I used 15 small red potatoes so the sauce coated the chunks nicely...nobody likes a mayo fest. I added more salt and pepper to taste as I found it was lacking. I give mine 5 stars and stuck this recepie in my favorites. Thank you!
Great recipe, was very good and everyone liked it. (Made it for 5 other people). Low-fat and delicious, my favorite combination!
