Greek Yogurt Potato Salad (With Lemon)

Delicious potato salad without mayo? Yes, that’s possible!

This is not just another potato salad! This flavorful potato salad is seasoned to perfection with lemon juice, dijon mustard, fresh parsley, and olive oil. Topped with greek yogurt and crunchy bacon, this salad is ridiculously tasty. It’s still creamy, but way healthier, and brighter! 🙂

The secret to potato salad full of flavor? Pour over the dressing while potatoes are hot! They will soak up all the flavors. Don’t even think of adding the dressing when potatoes are already cold, you’ll be only disappointed!

You can serve this salad both warm and cold, and it goes perfectly as a side dish, but you can totally enjoy it alone. It tastes even better the next day!

So here it is, a simple and easy recipe for Greek Yogurt Potato Salad! With lemon.

What you need

Potato salad recipes don’t call for many ingredients most of the time. This recipe is no exception. You’ll need just a few basic ingredients to put this salad together!

Here’s your checklist:

  • Potatoes – waxy, salad potatoes will be the best, but honestly, use the ones you like! I often make this salad with soft and fluffy potatoes that break down a bit when cooked, and it is amazing too.
  • Greek yogurt – you can also use sour cream. Sometimes I mix these two.
  • Green onions – or chives.
  • Fresh parsley – or other herbs like dill or mint.
  • Dijon mustard, lemon juice (fresh), olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little bit of sugar – for the dressing.
  • Bacon – cut into smaller pieces and fried until crunchy. Bacon is totally optional, but I love it and well, everything tastes better with it. 🙈🙊

So how to make the greek yogurt potato salad? It couldn’t be easier:

  • Mix the dressing ingredients and set aside.
  • Wash, cut in half and cook potatoes.
  • When drained and hot, mix together with dressing and set aside. Let potatoes soak in all the flavors!
  • Top with greek yogurt, green onions, parsley, and optionally fried, crunchy pieces of bacon!

    This looks delicious! I am always looking for potato salad variations. Making the same recipe over and over again gets very boring.
