Grilling season is here and I know most of you have a family recipe for potato salad that you always make and it’s probably really good. But believe me, you will want to try this healthier Creamy Horseradish Potato Salad. The horseradish really adds a surprising depth of flavor that will have everyone raving. And the uber-creamy (but lower in fat) dressing makes it taste soooo decadent.
Speaking of that delectable dressing… I wanted it to be really creamy so I used thick and velvety non-fat Greek yogurt for the base of the dressing. To that I added only ¼ cup of full-fat mayonnaise, which gives it richness without too much added fat per serving. And the best part is this can be made the day before leaving you more time to just chill and grill!
Have you ever added hard boiled eggs to your potato salad? It is so good! The bits of yolk mix with the dressing and potatoes to add even more creaminess and also nice bright color. And the chunks of the whites add a really nice and interesting texture. Then the fresh parsley gets folded in for a burst of color and texture that makes the whole dish extra special.
And just because there’s always room for more potato salad on your table this summer check out a few more awesome recipes from me and my blogging friends….
