Best Easy Red Potato Salad Recipe – Party Food Recipes
Easy Red Potato Salad is the perfect potato salad to serve with your BBQ or potluck this summer. Serve this potato salad as a side for barbecue chicken.
3 pounds red potatoes, washed, dried, and cut into quarters
¾ cup mayonnaise
¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
1 medium shallot, outer skin removed and finely chopped
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
½ cup fresh dill, chopped
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
Place cut potatoes in a large microwave-safe dish and add 2 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave for 2-3 minutes or until fork tender. (Cooking time will vary by microwave, so check after 2 minutes. Potatoes should be tender enough to split with a fork, but still firm).
Remove potatoes from dish and spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet to dry. Blot gently with a paper towel, if needed.
In a small glass bowl, add mayonnaise, yogurt, shallot, mustard and fresh herbs. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add potatoes to a separate bowl and gradually add mayonnaise mixture and toss to coat. (Don’t add all of the mayonnaise mixture at once in case you decide you want less on your potato salad). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days.
