Potato Salad with Corn

My Favourite Salads

Potato Salad_0018When potatoes are on sale, I always buy and stock. On this day I’d ran out of ideas on what to do with the left over potatoes. I decided to boil them and then remembered I had numerous cans of corn in the cold room and some left over parsley from cooking Pasta the previous week. And then there was this French dressing that had been used once and had been chilling in the fridge for months, and that huge mayonnaise bottle that had been hardly touched..oops!

Anyway I had a nice potato salad for lunch. It tasted really nice but the next time I made it, I added Greek yoghurt instead. Frankly speaking I don’t like mayonnaise. The thought of oil drizzling down the chute of a food processor and turning into a white fluffy irresistible mayonnaise just doesn’t appeal to me anymore. I used to love it when I was much younger and calories didn’t mean anything to me, but these days, every calorie counts for me. I am watching my height (height???) waistline, virtually everything. I hope you love this recipe the way I did. Have a wonderful week!!!

  1. Using up what is in the house frequently results in fun creations! Glad you liked your potato salad. Greek yogurt is so versatile, I love to use it a lot too. Especially in baking and for sauces.

    1. I know how much you love Greek yoghurt. I love yoghurt too, mostly unsweetened! I love corn and I love potato so you can imagine how much I enjoyed the salad!!!
