Potato Salad with Dill and Mustard

So I whipped this one up yesterday and inhaled a bowl before heading to work.  What deliciousness!  I have a bunch of potatoes that have been growing in my cupboard from the past couple of CSA deliveries.  I can’t seem to eat them fast enough!  I figured it was time to try and use some of them, so I found a recipe for Potato Salad with Dill and Mustard.  I love potato salad and I love dill, so I figured this would be a winner.

First off, let me tell you a secret: if you’re making potato salad, it’s way easier to steam the potatoes than it is to boil them!  They don’t end up nearly as watery and it’s easier to tell when they’re just cooked enough.  This will probably be the only way I cook potatoes from now on.

I did make a few modifications to the recipe.  I wanted it to be a little healthier, so I only added half a cup of mayo and substituted plain yogurt for the other half cup.  You might even get away with a whole cup of yogurt(maybe greek would be best) and no mayo.  Also, I don’t eat relish, so I omitted that.  The only mustard I had on hand was French’s Spicy mustard(which I love!) so I used that for the mustard.

The results: spectacular!  It was creamy, slightly spicy, dilly, crunchy from the celery and onions…I want another bowl right now.  It would go great with a big juicy burger!  Another recipe to save for later!
