  1. This looks fantastic. My family loves good potato salad, and I bet they would be thrilled to death if I made it loaded like this one. I love adding Greek yogurt. I never would have thought of that. Seriously yum!!


  2. Love all the ingredients in this one; especially the use of Greek yogurt along with the mayo! Seems so easy and so delicious; this all adds up to one big winner! Great job with this one 🙂


  3. I’ve been dreaming of this salad ever since it’s first appearance on your blog. I almost hate you for sharing it again but secretly thank you for the reminder. I am totally making this for my husband’s belated birthday dinner. 🙂
