  • 1 kg waxy potatoes like Charlotte, Maris Peer or Jersey Royals.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 150 g 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 50 g low fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper
  • 1 stalk celery finely diced.
  • 1/2 small red onion finely diced.
  • 2 tbsp chives snipped into small pieces.


  • Peel and cube the potatoes into cubes (about 2cm size each).
  • Place potatoes into a large saucepan. Cover with water, add salt. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the potatoes until slightly tender but not falling apart for about 10 minutes. Drain using a colander and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  • In a small Pyrex bowl combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Add to the potatoes and gently stir to combine.
  • Add the celery, red onion, and chives to the potato mixture, stir to combine. Check seasoning. Add more salt and pepper to taste if required.
  • Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving to allow the salad to marinate and chill.
