Today I hosted a few of my friends over for a brunch out on the deck. I decided to make potato salad, in honor of the holiday weekend. This simple potato salad is not only quick and easy, but also healthy and delicious! I used lite mayonnaise and mixed it with nonfat, plain Greek yogurt for some added tanginess and creaminess. I also realized I didn’t have any dill, a classic herb to flavor most potato salad recipes, so I replaced that with some dried parsley. Overall I’d say this recipe was a quite a hit and will definitely make an appearance at more get togethers!

In addition to the potato salad, I also had a healthy spread of crustless quiche loaded with sauteed onions, spinach and tomatoes, fruit salad, and homemade guacamole with fresh crunchy veggies.


It turned out to be a beautiful day, spent with great company and not too shabby food!
