Healthy Potato Salad with Avo Greek Yogurt Dressing
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Chill time: at least 1 hour
3 lbs. small to medium size red potatoes
1 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup minced pickled jalapeno peppers plus 1 tablespoon juice from jar
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus additional for garnish, if desired
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 large, ripe avocado
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup diced celery
Place potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and make a slit to vent. Microwave on HIGH for 20 minutes, then let cool to warm. Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl; refrigerate to chill. Place yogurt, peppers and juice, cilantro, lime juice and garlic salt in a food processor and puree until smooth. Stir into potatoes with onion and celery. It's best to refrigerate for at least 1 hour for flavors to blend. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, if desired. Makes 8 servings.
Dressing may be prepared 1 day in advance and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator with plastic wrap pressed onto the surface
