Yogurt and Sour Cream Potato Salad

"I developed this recipe when a good friend with a history of severe heart problems needed something with less fat than traditional recipes. He loves this salad and requests it frequently. I'm sure that there are similar recipes but I couldn't find one on Zaar exactly like this."

    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.

    Used 1/4 tsp of ground mustard, onion powder and garlic salt. Used all reduced fat sour cream, plain Greek Yogurt, and mayo to cut down on cholesterol and fat. Tasted like a unique sour cream spread.


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.
