Get ready because we’re about to lighten up this favorite potato salad with a mix of Hellmann’s Carefully Crafted Dressing & Sandwich Spread + nonfat plain yogurt. Bam. That’s all there’s to it.

O-la friends! Clearly, I am all about salads right now. From pasta salads to potato salads, green salads, too – I’m definitely IN. I’m aso all about cold summer iced teas, ice creams, and flip flops. The best part is that I have like, four more salad recipes in my summer-blogging-arsenal. I often just get on a food streak and binge blog it.

However, because of all that salad making, homemade-dressing shaking, I have settled it. This Creamy Potato Salad is the only side dish I’m making for the rest of Summer 2016. It was THAT good.

This is the kind of salad you eat on a Sunday because, picnics and cookouts, BUT look forward to the few spoons of soggy leftovers that you will have on Monday.
No!? Am I REALLY the only one that likes a soggy salad?! Ha.

Well. Still. It’s the kind of salad that will make you feel all lovely inside because, again, it tastes like picnics and cookouts and that’s always an amazing feeling. Potato Salads + Summer were meant to be. ♥
They are like Ross and Rachel. Brenda and Dylan. Wayne and Garth!

… I desperately need to leave the ’90s …

Aaaaanyway. This recipe is a result of me standing in the kitchen with the fridge door(s) wide open, trying to figure out how to include all the avocados and Hellmann’s Carefully Crafted Dressing & Sandwich Spread in a potato salad. I thought this cookout season I would avoid my usual vinegar and oil drenched salad variety, and punch up my potato salad with a creamy, but light delicious dressing. Thankfully, Hellmann’s delivered, once again.

This dressing is so, so simple, and as long as you don’t tell anyone that there’s yogurt in it until they’re done eating it, it’s all good!

A dressing of nonfat yogurt mixed with Hellmann’s new Carefully Crafted Dressing & Sandwich Spread replaces the heavier dressings found in a traditional potato salad, but it’s still just as good. I promise. Besides, their new Dressing and Sandwich Spread is still just as rich and creamy as you’d expect, but free from cholesterol, eggs, and artificial colors and flavors.

I can’t help but love potato salad. It’s simple, it’s summery, it’s fresh and zesty, and you can add a million things to it, just as I did. This combination is everything my heart ever wanted in the homemade no-mayo potato salad food department and we loved it.

    I love Hellmann’s! I grew up on another brand which I won’t mention, and when I moved East and tasted Hellmann’s, that was it for me. I’ve never gone back and I never will. I’ve never seen this particular product before…I will be keeping my eyes out! Your potato salad looks fantastic. You can’t have a cookout without it…will definitely have to try this!

  5. This is my kinds of potato salad, and I love the flavors here. I think Ross and Rachel would definitely approve!
