How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup Greek-style, plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Kirby cucumbers—peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill

How to make this recipe

  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook over high heat until tender, about 9 minutes. Drain, gently shaking out the excess water. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze for about 10 minutes, just until no longer warm.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the yogurt with the mayonnaise until smooth. Add the cucumbers, chile, mint and dill. Fold in the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Make Ahead

The potato salad can be refrigerated for 2 days.
