Simple Potato Salad

Hey everyone!! I hope you are all doing well πŸ™‚Β  So, summer time picnics, great food, gorgeous weather, good friends, does it get any better??? πŸ™‚Β  Our weekend was nice we had fun, laughed, and just enjoyed our friends company. πŸ™‚Β 

During the weekend I got a chance to do some power walking early Saturday morning,Β  on Sunday I decided to just take the day off.Β  πŸ™‚Β  I try to get out as early as possible before the sun is completely up because power walking, jogging, or just walking in the sun is definitely not something I enjoy.Β  Β Even when I was living in Greece, I tried to get everything done early in the morning during the weekends to avoid the sun.Β  I love the sun when I am at the beach otherwise you will never catch me sitting in the sun like most people do while drinking coffee or eating. I absolutely prefer the shade πŸ™‚

Ok, so about this recipe, it is a simple potato salad greek style πŸ™‚Β  The original recipe that my mom used to make had no mustard πŸ™‚Β  I guess because the mustard we had back then was and still is quite strong, that’s why you put it on Hot Dogs! πŸ™‚ whereas if you use Mild Dijon Mustard it is a much better option to spice up the mayonnaise just a tad bit.Β  Β So, the next timeΒ your going on a picnic to the park or just spending the day in the garden, balcony, terrace, and your having friends over or you just want to enjoy this recipeΒ  yourself πŸ™‚Β  give it a try and let me know how it turned out. πŸ™‚



  • 500 grams boiled potatoes cut into cubes
  • 300 grams Mayonnaisse
  • 2 tablespoons Mild Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Lemon Juice and Lemon Zest
  • 2 tablespoons Dill diced
  • 2 tablespoons Scallions chopped
  • 300 grams Greek Yogurt
  • Pepper


  • In a large sauce pan add salted water and the potatoes, and boil on medium heat. When boiled drain water and set aside to cool.
  • In the meantime diced the dill.
  • When the potatoes have cooled off add them into a large bowl along with the diced dill.
  • In a separate bowl add mayonnaise, mustard, yogurt, and whisk.
  • Continue by adding the lemon zest.
  • Whisk until combined and slowly start to pour in the lemon juice.
  • Add the yogurt mixture into the potatoes and combine thoroughly. I added some fresh scallions into my potatoes and also topped the potatoes with fresh scallions. πŸ™‚
