Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan.
  • Cover the potatoes with water, making sure the water is about 2 inches above the potatoes.
  • Turn the heat up to bring the water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, turn the heat down and let the potatoes simmer without a cover until they can be easily pierced with a fork, which should take about 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes and let them cool down a bit.
  • While the potatoes are cooling, grab a large bowl.
  • In the bowl, use a fork to mash up the yolk of one egg with some vinegar until it's smooth.
  • To the same bowl, add yogurt, mayonnaise, relish, Splenda, salt, and pepper.
  • Stir everything in the bowl until it's well mixed.
  • Now, add the slightly cooled potatoes, chopped celery, and onion into the bowl.
  • Toss everything together so the potatoes, celery, and onion are evenly coated with the mixture.
  • Take the white part of the egg you used earlier and the whole other egg, chop them up, and gently fold them into the potato salad.
  • Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator.
  • Keep the potato salad in the fridge until it's cold and ready to serve.

Tips and Tricks

Ingredients

Potato Selection: Opt for waxy potatoes like Yukon gold or red potatoes which hold their shape better after boiling and provide a firmer texture in the salad.

Egg Boiling: Boil the eggs in advance and let them cool in the fridge. This makes them easier to peel and chop for the salad.

Herbs for Freshness: Fresh herbs like dill, chives, or parsley can be stirred in just before serving to add a fresh layer of flavor.

Process

Flavor Development: Make the salad a day ahead. The flavors meld together and intensify when given time to sit, making the salad even more flavorful the next day.

Storage

Storage: Store the potato salad in an airtight container in the fridge. It typically stays fresh for up to 3-4 days.

Serving: Serve the salad chilled, but letting it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving can enhance the taste and texture.
