Southwest Potato Salad
If you like giving a makeover to a traditional recipe, this potato salad is for you! I developed this recipe about a year ago. I recently served it and my 16 year old son pronounced itYetti" good! I guess that's a compliment!
It is simple and fun recipe.
Southwestern Potato Salad Recipe:
3-4 pounds red potatoes --Leave the skins on.
1 6 ounce container plain yogurt -- I use Greek-style.
1 cup sour cream -- low-fat or no-fat is fine
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 package taco seasoning--reduced sodium is fine
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, cut into small pieces and a few leaves for garnish
Wash and then cut potatoes and put in large pot to cook until done. Drain and cool potatoes. Add yogurt, sour cream, onion, taco seasoning, pepper, salt, and cilantro. Put salad in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving so that flavors can meld together. Before serving, garnish with cilantro.
