Protein Packed Red Potato Salad

03 Jul 2014

2 lbs. red potatoes, cut into 3/4 inch chunks

4 eggs (yolks removed after cooking)

Water

3/4 cup fat free plain yogurt

2 tsp. Dijon mustard (optional)

1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

2/3 cup chopped whole green onions

3 tbsp. finely chopped flat leaf parsley

1/2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh tarraon

 Salt and pepper to taste

Place potatoes and eggs in a large pot.  Add enough cold water to exceed the top of potatoes by 2 inches.  Place the pot over high heat and add one tsp. of salt.  Bring water to boil and cook uncovered until potatoes are tender. approximately 20-30 minutes.

Drain potatoes and eggs in colander and allow them to cool.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the yogurt and mustard.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil.  Add the onions , parsley, tarragon and stir until combined.

Remove eggs and transfer the potatoes to a large bowl  Peel eggs, remove yolks and cut egg whites into small pieces, add egg whites to potatoes in bowl.  Pour dressing over potatoes and egg whites.  Mix well with a wooden spoon breaking some of the potatoes so some of them are a bit mashed and ingredients are well combined.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.   Garnish with chopped parsley. Refrigerate for a least one hour or up to two days.  Makes 6 servings.

**When I don't have whole green onions I use 1/2 to 3/4  of cup grated yellow onion.  If your salad is a bit dry I sometimes add a tbsp.of low fat mayo to add a bit more flavor and moisten up, only if needed.  If you slightly mash some of the potatoes in this salad is gives it a creamier texture thus requiring less dressing/mayo.  Large chunks of potatoes seem drier and require more added fat and calories to be added for a similar result.
