You may think that just because you are on a wellness journey you have to stray away from potato salad-well, I’m here to tell you-you don’t need to deprive yourself of this Skinny Potato Salad-which is incredibly easy to make, low in points, and tastes amazing! 

To begin making this skinny potato salad you will place the potatoes into a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. When potatoes are soft take off heat and drain water. Set aside and allow the potatoes to cool.

And cut and dice the pickles, scallions, red onion and celery. 

In a small mixing bowl, mix together dry Italian salt dressing mix, Italian dressing, light mayo and non fat plain or Greek yogurt. Whisk until well incorporated.

Slice the potatoes into cubes. Place cubes into a large mixing bowl.

Add diced celery, dill pickles, scallions, onions to the potatoes.

Pour dressing mixture over the top, toss all ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Let it cool or chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

  • 2 lbs red potatoes, raw 
  • 1 Tbsp salt for water
  • 1 ( 1 oz.) package dry Italian salad dressing mix

  • 1/3 cup red onion, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup light Kraft mayonnaise 
  • 1 cup non fat Greek or plain yogurt 
  • 2 tbsp light or fat free Italian dressing ( I use Olive Garden lite Italian dressing) 
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste 

Directions:

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. When potatoes are soft take off heat and drain water. Set aside and allow the potatoes to cool.
