Light Spring Garden Potato Salad

Potato salad is a staple at spring potlucks and picnics, but too much added fat and salt can make it an unhealthy choice. This recipe uses fresh spring garden favorites like peas and dill for added flavor. It’s mixed with a dressing made of Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard that reduces both the total fat and calories.
