Praise for a (for potato salad) low fat version of a classic summer "must have". I used the fat free plain yogurt and low fat sour cream and a mayo made with olive oil. Thyme was used in place the dill. some might think it sparse in "add in's" but I really think it's excellent as written. I'll be having potato salad again this summer.

I am a retired RN living in Charlotte, NC. My husband died in 2003 on July 4 so my only housemates are my two dogs, FuTu and Little Bit. My 3 children and their families all live within 45 minutes of me. I love to cook, and often send meals out to sick and elderly or families with new babies. I collect cookbooks, have about 500 but still love to check 'ZAAR daily for new ideas and recipes. The cookbook I use most often is called "Recipes and Remembrances" and has 1000 recipes compiled by my Sunday School class from church members--in compiling the recipes, each committee member included their on favorites so that we could use this as our main source for cooking.
