Macro Friendly (Mayo FREE) Potato Salad

Fourth of July weekend is here! Who else loves ALL holidays? I love any reason to be festive. (Hello... former elementary teacher) Parties, parades, a long weekend, patriotic apparel, it's all SO fun!


Who can forget a good Fourth of July cookout, though?! The struggle is real when you're on a mission to live a healthy lifestyle and every time you turn around there is a social gathering with lots of yummy food and you know not one thing is "good for you". (Don't get me wrong, I am a big splurge on the holidays type girl) But if you're doing that every weekend in the summer, you won't exactly find yourself feeling good or hitting your goals any time soon. SO... let's cook a macro friendly dish! Easy potato salad- healthy carbs and much lower fat than a tub of premade stuff from the deli.




Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs potatoes (washed and peeled)

  • 2/3 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt

  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard (could also use Dijon)

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • Salt and pepper (desired amount)

  • 1/2 bell pepper (any color)

  • 2 eggs (hard boiled)

First, you'll need to peel your potatoes and choose a cooking method. I chose to steam mine, but you could bake them in the oven or even boil. Remember you'll need to cube cut them, so you don't want them to be too mushy, so just keep an eye on them while they cook.


While the potatoes are cooking, go ahead and boil your eggs and set aside to cool. (Putting the eggs in a bowl of cold water will help cool them quickly)While the potatoes are cooling, go ahead and combine the yogurt, mustard and onion powder into a bowl and mix together like a sauce- set aside. Also dice your pepper and hard boiled eggs while you're waiting. Here's my favorite dicing tool!


Lastly, just cube up the potatoes, and add the mustard yogurt sauce, egg and bell pepper and stir gently until the potatoes are coated evenly with the sauce. ADD salt and pepper to your liking. You can sprinkle with some dried dill before serving.


TIPS-

Keep in mind- I made this for a small gathering- just family. If wanting to share with a large party, definitely double the recipe. Things to add or replace the bell pepper with could be shredded or diced carrot or even diced pickle (that crunch factor is what you're going for)


Happy Summer!
