This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 3 medium-sized red potatoes (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 c. celery, chopped

  • 1 Tbsp. mustard
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise, low-fat
  • 1/2 c. plain, nonfat yogurt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Lettuce, tomato, chopped green onion (garnish)


Wash potatoes, leave skin on and cut into bite-sized chunks. Place in pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower to simmer and cook uncovered until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain in colander and sprinkle lightly with cold water. Put the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Drain potatoes well and add to the bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use. Garnish with fresh lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
