Healthy, Delicious Potato Salad

 

IMG_0679This salad wasn’t based on any one recipe, but on several non-mayo potato recipes. In addition to being delicious, it’s also very filling.

This is definitely a salad where you can leave out pretty much anything – other than the potatoes – and it will still work.

Salad Ingredients:

  • Red-skinned potatoes (1/4 lb or so?), cut into ~1/4″ pieces
  • Chicken (2-3 tenders)
  • Chives or shallot (optional)
  • Red and yellow bell pepper
  • Quinoa (optional)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • Plain light Greek yogurt (~16 oz)
  • Spicy sauce – A1, worcestershire, etc. – to taste
    • I used Hak’s BBQ sauce, which is kind of like a spicier version of worcestershire
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Fresh parsley (optional)

Nothing fancy here! Boil the potatoes (10-15 minutes). Cook the chicken on the stove or in the oven. If you’re using a shallot, consider cooking it on the stove for just 3 or 4 minutes, until it’s slightly browned, so it’s not too strong.

I enjoyed adding quinoa, especially when I didn’t have chicken, to add some protein and fiber to the dish.

Combine and enjoy! Lasts a long time (~week or so), even once the dressing is mixed in.

I tried a variant with corn and green beans, and oddly they didn’t seem to work so well in this dish.
