Dietitian's Tip: 

Potatoes are an excellent source of potassium and fiber. They also contain almost half your Daily Value of vitamin C. So, keep potatoes on your table with this flavorful, nutrient-rich and easy-to-prepare recipe.

Ingredients: 

1 pound small red potatoes, cleaned, unpeeled
½ cup red onion, diced
1 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation: 

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat to simmer and cook potatoes until tender, about 15 – 20 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.

Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

Leave skin on and smash each potato on a cutting board using the bottom of a glass. Add the smashed potatoes to the yogurt dressing and stir to coat potatoes.
