I am a potato girl. I’m pretty sure there is not a potato I have met that I do not like. I feel a little like Bubba in Forrest Gump rattling off all of the shrimp variations, but with potato dishes. Even though I love the classics, I also like to shake things up and make something different! This Healthy Tzatziki Potato Salad is made with the same flavors of our amazing Greek tzatziki yogurt sauce (which I love to put on everything like these Oregano Lemon Yogurt Greek Chicken Skewers. Yum.). Plain Greek yogurt is mixed with lemon, cucumber, dill, and garlic and it is just SO GOOD!
I made this Healthy Tzatziki Potato Salad with a healthy spin by using plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream or mayonnaise. I am NOT a yogurt person, but in recipes like this you cannot tell! You still get the same creamy effect but the seasonings and flavors you mix in cover up any yogurt flavor. It is a great way to put a healthier spin on a potato salad.
Not being a yogurt fan, I was always skeptical of tzatziki as well. But it is AMAZING! The flavors of cucumber and lemon really shine through and I now find myself making tzatziki on a regular basis. Even some of our friends that also have a yogurt aversion are in love with it as a dip when they come over for dinner.
This gluten free (GF) and vegetarian Healthy Tzatziki Potato Salad is simple to make and also holds over well, which means you can easily make it in advance for any party or event.
