I wanted something quick and healthy as a side for a week night meal, and found this great recipe. It was something I could make with what we had on hand, and paired well with the chicken dish we were having for dinner.
POTATO AND VEGETABLE SALAD WITH MUSTARD RANCH DRESSING
2 pounds of potatoes, unpeeled and cut into bite sized pieces
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (I left this out)
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Place potato pieces and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender but still hold their shape. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Combine remaining 1 teaspoon salt, yogurt, buttermilk, mustard, lemon juice, black pepper, honey and garlic, in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
Add the potatoes, bell pepper, celery, onion (if using) parsley, chives and dill, to the yogurt mixture, and toss gently to coat.
