Potato salad is a classic staple of summer picnics, but most of us have grown to fear it with it’s countless hidden calories. This refreshing, creamy-dill potato salad is made with greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise, so you can indulge in this holiday favorite without sky rocketing off your daily allowance.

1 stalk chopped celery
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
2 teaspoons dill
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed pepper 
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cube and steam the potatoes until fork tender. Place steamed potatoes and chopped celery in a medium sized mixing bowl. In a separate small cup mix remaining ingredients, pouring the dressing over the potatoes and stir.  If your potatoes are dry, you may want to add an additional tablespoon of yogurt. Salt to taste.
