Smoked Potato Salad

Smoked Potato Salad

This smoked potato salad comprises creamer potatoes, fresh dill, and a rich whole grain mustard dressing. Instead of the usual mayonnaise, the recipe uses Greek yogurt for a brighter flavor profile (and fewer calories). The result is a smoky, herbaceous, tangy salad that can be served alone or as a side dish.
