Green Onion & Pea Potato Salad

Green Onion & Pea Potato Salad from #MakeItMine #recipe

With just one day until the ultimate barbecue day of the year I figured it was fitting to post a potato salad recipe. I mean lets face it–it’s been over 2 years since I last posted my grandmother’s secret potato salad recipe. This potato salad recipe has been a long time in the making (ok, maybe not, but much overdue none-the-less). I’ve also joined a new bi-weekly series called Make It Mine Club hosted by Christine of Cook the Story and Jane of  Jane’s Adventures in Dinner. It just so happens that potato salad is todays theme. So today I’ve done a little reinventing of the potato salad and made a Green Onion & Pea Potato Salad.

This potato salad isn’t made with creamy, oh-so fattening mayonaise. Instead its made with greek yogurt! I love peas and add them to just about any meal so it was only fitting to add them to this potato salad. So whether you like the traditional or would like to be adventurous try one of our potato salad recipes out this week!

    Such a fresh looking potato salad, love all the green in it. I’m not a fan of mayo, so I usually avoid potato/macaroni/egg salads, so this one with the yogurt is definitely more appealing.

      Thanks Suzanne! I don’t like mayo either but will do it in potato/macaroni salad if its not a lot of it! 🙂 Definitely give the yogurt base a try!
